We utilize a multitude of resources — including the following Web sites — to gather information for print, Web and other projects.
All things VCU fall under this easy-to-navigate index. You can also search by department, program, administration, centers and institutes, colleges and schools, faculty or student organization Web sites, or the VCU Health System.
Creative Services uses AP style when creating university publications. These style guidelines ensure that Web sites and publications maintain consistency in capitalization, punctuation, etc. If you have specific questions, feel free to contact one of our editors.
As part of an ongoing marketing and communications initiative, an institutional identity campaign has been developed to establish Virginia Commonwealth University — and the VCU Medical Center — in a clear, contemporary design. The VCU Brand standards website includes information on nomenclature, graphic standards, stationery and signage.
The Bulletins Web site provides the most current information on all of VCU’s programs and curricula. The online Bulletins are updated regularly to reflect changes that occur throughout the academic year. The site also houses the Bulletin archives, where older versions are available as PDFs.
As the public relations arm of VCU, Communications and Public Relations leads the news and public information efforts of the university and acts as the liaison to the news media and general public.
The VCU Courses database lists course descriptions and is searchable by unit, subject, keyword and level. The site also offers links to the Bulletins, Schedule of Classes and eServices Web sites.
VCU’s location includes two downtown campuses. Printed maps are available at kiosks on both campuses. Online you may look for buildings by name or function, see overviews of either campus or get directions and parking information.
Both interior and exterior signs fall under the domain of VCU Identity. If you have signage needs, please consult the online signage manual for specifications.
The VCU University Communications Review Committee was established as a resource to assist internal and external constituents in support of the institution’s identity and pride initiatives. Electronic and print communications for external audiences (i.e., signage, publications, Web sites) should be submitted to the committee for approval of correct nomenclature and logo usage.
Presented by Technology Services, these guidelines provide useful information for planning and publishing various types of Web sites.
