University of Maryland Web Site Guidelines
University Design Standards have been developed with the goal of providing a standardized
look for University of Maryland web sites.
As of May 7, 2008, it is University of Maryland policy that any University of
Maryland web site being redesigned or newly developed will be identified with
the University of Maryland "web page wrap
the goal that eventually all university web pages will adopt the "web page
wrap" when redesigned.
The word mark in the wrap will always link back to the University of Maryland
home page (www.umd.edu
UM Wrap should the top element on the web page. Nothing should appear above the
wrap. (This does not apply to personal student pages.)
color alterations to the web wrap and the University of Maryland word marks
are prohibited by copyright and trademark.
All uses of University Marks must comply with University Design Standards.
University Marks may not be modified in any way without prior University approval.
University Marks may not be used in conjunction with the name or mark(s) of any other entity without the prior written permission of the University
Marketing and Communications and that entity. If permission is granted to use both the University Mark and another party's mark, the marks must be distinct and separate from one another and neither mark may dominate the other in order to protect the integrity of both marks.
No University Mark may be used in any manner that suggests or implies University endorsement of products, services, political parties or views, or religious organizations or beliefs.
No one other than the University may claim copyright or trademark rights in or seek to register any design that uses University Marks.
The University will not approve the use of University Marks in connection with alcoholic beverages, inherently dangerous products (firearms, explosives), illegal drugs, tobacco, gambling, sexually suggestive products or language, or any health-related product.
