Editorial Style Guide

Following accepted editorial style is an important component to ensuring consistency and clarity among all campus-affiliated communications.

University Communications relies primarily on the Associated Press style guide, which is used by most newspapers and broadcast news agencies. We use the Chicago Manual of Style for questions not addressed in the AP guide.

Our office has prepared the Editorial Style Guide (PDF) to provide answers to campus-related style questions. It's meant to serve as a supplement to other style guides you may use in your field. The campus style guide is updated annually, and your feedback is welcome. Please contact Lorena Anderson with your comments.
