Student Group Website Options

Maize Pages

Maize Pages is a modern third-party site provided through the central university. It contains student groups from the whole UofM student body. This is what the University recommends to student groups for building their public-facing website. If you are interested, go to the Maize Pages site, Log In with your UofM Login, and start by clicking the “Register A New Organization” link.

 

Google Sites

Google Sites is a website builder provided by Google and supported through the University’s contract with Google. It allows a student group to create a Google Site, add content, and brand it however they want. It allows for a simple design based on established Google templates. It features simple blog/announcements, a menu editor, and a “file cabinet”. In general, Law Student groups have not been happy with the limitations of Google Sites, An example site is: https://sites.google.com/a/umich.edu/lawllsa/

 

AFS (Andrew File System)

AFS is a Unix based file storage, web publishing, and file sharing system provided by the University to academic units and groups. Web sites are set up usually by writing html pages and other programming techniques. The Law School has space available on AFS for Law School student groups.

  • AFS allows the use of a self-installed version of WordPress. Users are responsible for maintaining security and patches at all times.
  • You access files with an Secure File Transfer Program (available from the Blue Disk download page) or by navigating a web browser to mfile.umich.edu.
  • For further information see: http://services.it.umich.edu/afs

No matter what you choose, please let the Office of Student Life know where your site is hosted so they can update the link on the Law School’s Student Organization web page.
