Accuracy in how we present information about the University, such as the correct names of buildings, spellings, dates, and references to majors, colleges and programs, helps build audience recognition, understanding and clarity. Therefore, writers and editors who develop content for communication materials should acquaint themselves with the University Editorial Style Guide for guidance in writing copy.

For style and grammar issues not covered in the University Editorial Style Guide, writers should default to The Associated Press Stylebook, the style guide widely used by  journalists and mainstream media. (Please note that this rule does not apply to academic writing intended for research and journals. Those writers should default to the style guide approved for their particular field of study).
