Marketing and Communications Policies

Name Use Requests

Requests to use the name Prairie View A&M University or PVAMU, photographs of the university, or any of its seals, logos, or symbols in advertisements or marketing materials, press releases, movies or television programs must be directed to the Office of Marketing and Communications.

Department & Administrative Unit Logos

All logos and wordmarks developed outside of the Office for Marketing and Communications must adhere to the brand standards, be uniform with the visual identity guidelines and will require approval prior to usage.

Social Media for Departments and Administrative Units

Prairie View A&M University’s Office for Marketing and Communications oversees the content, look and feel of all official University social media sites. To request a posting, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications. Departments and Administrative Units may establish their own social media sites.

Passwords and Usernames for all social media sites established must be provided to the Office for Marketing and Communications to ensure that the sites can be maintained even if the initiator is no longer overseeing site content updates.

If a Departmental or Administrative Unit’s social media site has not been updated for 3 months, the Office of Marketing and Communications will discontinue the site.
