The Fletcher School’s Office of Communications, Public Relations & Marketing (C/PR&M) provides strategic direction for the development and design of Fletcher’s public websites. C/PR&M offers Web-publishing services to the Fletcher community, which includes microsites for the School’s many Departments, Centers, Programs and official student-led groups at fletcher.tufts.edu. We work with internal departments and offices to create and maintain content across all official sites.
Fletcher stakeholders can now edit, create and publish official School websites (excluding the Fletcher intranet) through OASYS, a free set of services that allow multiple users to more easily manage their web content using School-branded publishing templates. OASYS stands for Online Authoring System and Services. More information about creating a website authoring account is found here.
The Fletcher School’s websites are considered official publications of the School, and they are held to editorial standards and operate within policies defined by the School’ leadership. The C/PR&M team has the right to remove any content that does not comply with these standards and policies.
Individuals or groups are not permitted to use Fletcher branding or logos on their own websites, including those hosted at sites.tufts.edu, without prior written authorization from C/PR&M.
If you have a question or concern about The Fletcher School’s website, the School’s logo use or other branding issues, please contact us at CPR@Tufts.edu.
