Web Editor Access

Web editors play an important role when it comes to LC State's overall brand. Communications & Marketing maintains the overall style and presentation of the college's website, web editors are essential in maintaining, creating, and updating content.

Although any LC State employee can log in to create their campus directory profile, trained web editors have expanded backend website access to edit pages, view their unpublished content, and more.

All web editors at LC State must have a legitimate need to editor their department/office website. They must undergo basic web editor training before being granted web editor access.

If you have questions or need help please submit a Website ticket - https://kbox.lcsc.edu or email [email protected].
