Athletics logos and marks

Careful regard for the proper treatment of JMU’s logos and marks is vital in promoting and protecting the university's brand identity. Because graphic components that appear in published communications influence people’s perceptions of JMU, the university’s athletics logos and marks have specific standards that must be followed.
