Writer's Style Guide

The University Style Guide was created to give consistency to University publications, such as brochures, magazines, newsletters and other pieces for distribution to a large audience. This guide is not intended to apply to correspondence, writing for scholarly journals or other writing not related to University informational or marketing publications.

In general, The Associated Press' "Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law" is the official style reference publication for the University. The listings that follow include the most frequently used rules as well as University-specific derivations from the AP Stylebook.
