An Official Publication Requires Standards is an official publication of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA). We use a consistent look and adhere to high-quality content, style and usability standards.

The website is the primary means by which seekers learn about Unitarian Universalism. It is an important means by which congregation members, religious professionals, and leaders can educate themselves and each other.

If you maintain a congregational website, consider following these standards and styles to make your site as clear and usable as possible.

Usability and Accessibility

An accessible website doesn't exclude visitors due to their abilities, or the method they choose to access the web. On UUA websites, we strive to comply with Section 508 and Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines.

A usable site allows visitors to retrieve information easily and efficiently. It inspires confidence in the site and ultimately inspires visitors to return again and again. In short, usability is absolutely critical to a website's success, and we therefore promote these usability guidelines on all UUA sites.

Good usability can be defined as a product that is:

  • Intuitive to use
  • Efficient to use
  • Easy to remember
  • Enjoyable to use
  • Consistent in its behavior

On a website this means using well-thought-out content and design, and creating content that is easy to find and simple to navigate. standards and guidelines have been created to support and promote these ideals. Writing for the Web can help tailor your content especially for this medium.
