Department directors or chairs are responsible for ensuring that printed material produced by their departments contain accurate information, are competently written and designed, properly use the University logo and accessibility notices, and comply with accreditation standards and protocols. Final layout for collateral and manuals are usually done in the University PR department. The PR graphics designer can offer advice on text and design.


Not all marketing materials need to be approved by University PR. You should submit your materials here if they use CSU Brand Style components, including brand-specific fonts (Arial, Avenir, Cambria, Garamond, Garamond Pro, Gill Sans, Myriad Pro and Times New Roman), photos, textures or shadow elements, AND meet any of the of the criteria below.

  1. The materials will be professionally printed or used as a paid advertisement.
  2. The materials have a shelf life of longer than two (2) weeks.
  3. The materials will reach an internal and external audience and will represent the CSU academic community. Most collateral review submissions can expect a response within 3 business days.


The turn-around time for each collateral submission varies depending on staffing and the length or scope of each piece. Please plan accordingly.


**Please note: UPR does not provide FINAL proofreading services. It is up to the collateral piece creator to proofread all FINAL content. UPR is not responsible for errors found after production.
