Medical School Wordmark Guidelines

The use of the Medical School Wordmark helps our audiences to quickly see that it is a University communication. All Medical School offices, departments, centers, and affiliated units should utilize the Medical School wordmark. The Medical School wordmark can not be modified in any way and should only be used in in strict accordance with University of Minnesota policy and the graphics requirements.

Official University logos include the Wordmark, Driven to Discover, Block M, Unit/Wordmark combination, Goldy Gopher, and Regents Seal. These logos have specific uses and are not interchangeable. The guidelines below explain when and how to use each of the University’s logos:

  • Units may not develop new logos or alter existing logos. All Medical School-affiliated departments, units, centers and offices should use the official University of Minnesota Medical School wordmark.
  • The Medical School wordmark may not be used in the profile image or other graphics created for use on social media. 
  • Third party logos may only be used in conjunction with University marks if a signed agreement between the University and the outside vendor or company has been executed.
  • To use any logos on merchandise or apparel, see Trademark Licensing guidelines.
  • Student Organizations registered through Student Unions and Activities should review specific student group guidelines.
