Logo guidelines can be found here.

Departments, programs, centers, institutes or other units within the college should not use or create logos or wordmarks of any kind.

Where department unit should be identified on a piece, the department’s name should appear in plain text (preferably Gotham) opposite the College logo. Department name should never appear as part of the College logo. If space is restricted, departments should defer to the College logo alone. Using the Power T alone in conjunction with a name outside of approved lockups or logos is not permitted.

Logo shortcuts with the Power T and the unit name, also available, should only be used for small promotional materials on which the longer form logos are impractical. Examples include pens and flash drives.

The Power T square icon with College or Department abbreviation should ONLY be used as social media icon unless otherwise approved

Never use the university seal. It is reserved for use by the Office of the Chancellor.

If you have further questions about the use of a logo please contact Kara Clark Cardwell at


As important as our words are for telling our stories, it is critical that we get them right.

The purpose of these standards is to advise writers and editors on good editorial judgment and decision making and to ensure consistency in our words across university communications. They’re not intended to apply to academic writing, where many areas have a discipline-specific style—for example, American Psychological Association or Council of Science Editors.

As issues arise in your copy editing, check here first for university-approved styling, including information about how to refer to the institution. If the issue isn’t covered here, consult the following guides based on the type of communication.


For all university publications and websites, refer to the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.


Chicago’s preferred dictionary is the current edition of Webster’s Third New International Dictionary (available by subscription) or its abridged edition Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (free online).

Associated Press

For all news releases, media advisories, and other communications sent directly to news media professionals, refer to the most recent edition of the Associated Press Stylebook.
