Identity & Style Guide

The Thiel College Identity & Style Guide assists the College in presenting a unified graphic and editorial identity in all external communication to ensure that all messages are consistent, appropriate and accurate. All external communications should reflect our longstanding commitment to our values, vision and mission, communicating responsible messages through responsible means.

All departments of the College are required to conform to the criteria established in this guide. The authority and responsibility of interpreting and implementing the guidelines has been placed with the Office of Communications and Marketing.
