External Use

University departments may use Emory marks to raise funds for their own organization or charitable support. Items purchased for such purposes must be acquired from approved licensees and have the design artwork reviewed by the Emory Communications and Marketing brand team.

Student Groups

Officially recognized governance and official student groups may create merchandise bearing university logos. It is preferred that they work with a licensed or approved vendor. Governance and official student groups are established by Campus Life and the deans of the Emory schools. They can assist with review of proposed student organization branding.
