Seal, Brand and Logo Use


Communications such as invitations, brochures, newsletters, catalogs and advertisements reach an audience who will form impressions that serve as the basis for opinions and attitudes. Therefore, all publications must originate or seek approval from the Office of Marketing Communications to ensure that a clear, consistent image of the University is presented. This includes projects that are designed or produced by outside vendors. University letterhead, envelopes and business cards are purchased through the Mail Room.
