Editorial Style Guide
The Office of University Relations strives to present consistent and accurate language to properly brand the university with professionalism and excellence. To help facilitate this, University Relations adheres to an Editorial Style Guide that determines the standards and style of communications filtered through our office.
We also urge the offices, schools, and departments on campus to use the guide as a helpful reference in university-wide efforts to maintain consistency in our language and thus properly demonstrate our commitment to precision in communication. The Office of University Relations regularly updates the university's guide per institutional changes and industry trends.
