Identity Elements

Required and recommended elements

The UO web identity standards include required and recommended components. These standards apply to all sites revamped or created after September 2009.

For existing pages, we strongly encourage departments to incorporate the standards as soon as possible. In support of enhancing consistency of appearance and ease of use for site visitors, we recommend that any other UO organization or activity receiving university funds or supported by gifts and grants obtained by UO employees or programs also follow these guidelines for required and recommended elements.

Please note: Websites hosted on UO servers for consortia (such as the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnology Institute), professional meetings or university- affiliated organizations, and commercial or organizational sites, such as those maintained by the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics (, the UO Alumni Association (, and the UO Foundation (, must appropriately display a regulation UO signature provided by the UO entity with which they are associated or by the Office of Communications, and must follow UO print standards for signature usage.
