About the Style Guide

This style guide was developed by the Office of Institutional Advancement to promote consistency in text prepared by UMBC departments and offices, and to promote proper use of UMBC wordmarks, logos, and other elements of the UMBC identity.

This guide is a living document meant to grow and change as needs arise. If the style guide does not answer a particular question related to grammar, capitalization, etc., please consider the Associated Press Style Guide an appropriate resource for those purposes.
