Primary Monogram

Primary Shield Monogram

The primary monogram combination consists of the university shield and the monogram. It is one of the primary expressions of the identity and can be used in applications in which space is limited or an abbreviated expression of the identity is appropriate. For optimal reproduction, two versions of this combination have been created for regular- and small-use applications. Do not alter or attempt to recreate these elements in any way. Always use approved artwork.
