USE OF CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY LOGO
- The Chapman name and logo should never be copied or downloaded from the Internet for use on publicity.
- Departments/offices and recognized student organizations should contact the Publications and Creative Services office to get an authorized copy of the logo – Publications will verify that it is being used appropriately prior to providing a copy of the name and logo, so this should be done well in advance of any printing deadlines.
