Because standard university logos have been resized and optimized specifically for Web use, avoid interchanging them with print logos. Several versions of Web logos are available for download. All restrictions for standard logos apply to the Web logos, with the exception of size usage.
High-level pages within sites for colleges, departments, administrative offices, research centers, and outreach/Extension offices should include placement of an approved version of the university logo in the header of the page. (This does not apply to personal student and personal faculty pages.)
With the introduction of this broad-based visual identity program, all previous logos are obsolete and should be replaced as Web pages are updated.
Use of this alternative configuration is not intended for print media or Web banners. Its use is limited to exterior building applications, other signage, or formats where space constraints make it difficult to use the primary logo.
The secondary logo is not available for download. Requests to use this version of the logo should be directed to the identity system coordinator in University Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-231-3899.
The formal university seal is reserved for ceremonies, watermarks for official documents, diplomas, and building plaques.
