University of Minnesota System Style Guide

The University of Minnesota System consists of 5 distinct campuses across Minnesota with individual campus identities. The University of Minnesota developed this style guide to leverage the strength of the system and the unique attributes of each campus to better communicate the system’s value to key audiences. The system style guide provides a basis for consistent language, visual identity, and key messages and will be used by all campuses.
