Brand Guidelines

These standards provide guidelines for everyone to embrace and help preserve a unified visual identity and strengthen the brand of the entire university. With the application of these standards, we can better manage our identity and the image we want to project.

These standards are for use as a reference guide in developing communication materials. While most major applications are addressed, it is not possible to anticipate every design situation that may arise. When you have any questions, please contact us; we have a talented team of professionals available to serve you.
