The Web Support Program (WSP) is an alliance between ODU Academic Colleges, Administrative Offices, ITS, and University Communications to develop and maintain websites that align with the mission, priorities and goals of the University.
Our goal is to assist our clients with creating and managing web content, including digital assets and directory listings, while leveraging University and industry established standards and best practices.
Assistance is available by submitting a detailed request of web-related issues to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions or problems reported will be responded to as soon as possible, but no later than the end of the next working day.
