Knight Campus Style and Use of Images/Materials
The Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact is the most dramatic change in the 140-year history of the University of Oregon. While it has unlimited potential for scientific education and societal benefits, its success is also nearly entirely dependent on continued donor, state, federal, and community support. It’s essential that our communications are consistent, accurate, clear, and aligned with the expectations of both current and prospective funders.
To ensure this accuracy, all communications materials that reference the Knight Campus are required to be approved by University Communications. To streamline the approvals process, use the recommendations and resources provided in this style guide.
If you’re planning to use Knight Campus assets for event-marketing, editorial or commercial purposes, or are a member of a partner organization creating informational materials, please seek approvals and permission.
