Extended Profiles Renamed

The Extended Profile content type has been renamed to Department Directory Listing.  This change has made to avoid confusion caused with a person having only profile but multiple extended profiles.

University & Associated Press (AP Style) Web Content Tip: Time Format

Please remember this list of tips to avoid some of the most common mistakes we see on Kent State web pages.

Format time appropriately, according to AP Style Guidelines:

  • Times at the top of the hour do not have the minutes added, all other times should display the minutes.

  • Ante meridiem (times from midnight until before noon) is displayed as a.m. - post meridiem (time from noon, until before midnight) is displayed as p.m.

  • Noon is not capitalized.

  • Using either a hyphen or an em dash between times is acceptable to connect a timeframe.

Examples of correct usage are displayed below:

  • 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

  • 8:15 a.m. — noon
