Review and Approval Process
To ensure a higher level of consistency and continuity in all branding, advertising, marketing, and promotional efforts, all external publications developed by individual departments and divisions must be approved by University Communications for appropriate message, logo usage, and image quality. This process for review and approval covers all campus publications and collateral materials, (i.e. newsletters, brochures, signage, merchandise, nametags, Web content, promotional items, printed materials, etc.). Refer to the Publication Review Process for more information.

To have your publication reviewed, please send your request to Tammy Whaley. Please allow adequate time for your publication to be reviewed and edited, about 2-3 days, and also schedule time for any necessary edits and your printing.

Request a Publication
If you would like University Communications to create a publication for your department, which would include assistance with content, complete design/layout and coordination with the printer, please contact Tammy Whaley.
