To ensure that CU Denver’s clubs and organizations are accurately represented and supportive of the university brand, the following guidelines for identification and visual expression have been developed.
Below are descriptions of the types of student clubs and organizations recognized by CU Denver. For more information about current CU Denver student clubs and organizations—or to start a new one—contact CU Denver’s Office of Student Life.
Affiliated student clubs and organizations include groups that are formally recognized by the university. They are not controlled by or connected to local, state or national organizations and include CU Denver students serving as voting members.
Associated clubs and organizations include local chapters of state, regional or national groups that have a presence on campus and have been formally recognized by CU Denver.
Independent organizations are defined as groups or organizations with no recognition, association or affiliation with CU Denver. Students who join these groups do so on their own, and not on behalf of the university.
Student clubs and organizations that choose to self-identify through the use of custom artwork or logo designs must receive prior approval from University Communications and Student Life. All custom identities and artwork must adhere to the following general rules in addition to the above guidelines.
Do not use inappropriate language or visuals in artwork or designs.
Do not incorporate official CU logos, graphics or marks into custom artwork or designs.
