Training and Development

The University of Oregon has a distinct and special collection of logos and marks with special meaning and historic significance. These marks bond our community together and provide a way for our audiences to recognize and connect with the brand. It is important that our logos and marks are used with care and in accordance with our shared brand guidelines. Explore our logos, marks, cobranding, sponsorship, and trademark policies.

Brand Training

University Communications will offer broad brand training for faculty and staff to better understand the guidelines and resources available to them. During the training, we will also ensure you know the communication professional(s) tasked with supporting your division, department, or unit. There will be a few types of trainings we will offer to meet the needs of different users. Communication professionals will have an in-depth session that reviews the guidelines in more detail and walks you through the tools available in our Brand Library. Faculty and staff generally curious about the brand or who have some basic function in the areas of communication will be invited to attend the open session as space is available.

If you have any questions about brand guidelines or policies, we encourage you to reach out to
