Process for Submitting Recommendations

Submit all requests in writing via the Web Project Request form. If you have any questions about filling out this form, please contact the TMCC Webmaster. Once you submit your request, you will be contacted within 1-2 business days, and may be asked to present at the next Web Advisory Committee meeting. The committee does not vote at the first presentation meeting, but listens to the presentation and discusses the merit of the request then votes the next month.

Recommendation to Presenters

The College uses a data-driven decision process to ensure that the website meets the needs of our students, faculty and staff, including monthly tracking of web usage and trends. We encourage everyone who presents their request to the committee to bring any data that they may have to support their request.
