Creating a group page
Updated on 23 April 2022
Guidance for CMS editors on how to write and publish group content on the University website
You should create a group page if you need to:
- publish information about a recognised part of the University’s organisational structure such as a School, Directorate, department, research centre, or service
Writing a group title
Group titles should:
- reflect those defined in the University’s organisational structure in academic schools and professional services
- use title case (indicating this is a formal title)
Writing a group summary
Group summary information is displayed at the top of a group’s page below the title. Summaries also appear in search results and help user quickly identify and understand the purpose and function of the group.
- be informative and give the reader a sense of the group's purpose
- aim for a sentence, however if that’s difficult then two sentences is fine
- use first person plural (for example ‘We provide support and guidance to students’ rather than ‘Student Funding provides support and guidance to students’)
- use vague language
Example a group title and summary on a group page

Adding contact details
You should ensure that group contact details for enquiries are added to the page in an information panel. If the page is long you can optionally add contact details as a sub-page.
People and group pages
Members of staff who are associated with groups can be added as a sub-page. You should use the navigation label 'People' to link to this page.
