Web Identity Standards
University Web Services maintains a guide for development and design of university websites. Please consult the Web Identity Standards when creating or maintaining your site.
Online communications are quickly becoming the primary method our audience searches or and finds information. A consistent primary identifier – or masthead image – for our websites ensures clear in immediate visual reinforcement of our brand.
The following guidelines apply for website mastheads:
- Mastheads must appear at the very top of every university webpage.
- Mastheads must follow the official university format. Custom masthead designs (including logos, backgrounds or typography) are not allowed.
- Mastheads may not be resized or altered in any way.
If you are a site owner or developer currently building a new university website—or if you have a change to an existing site that impacts the masthead area—please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a masthead image.
