An Identity Committee created by the vice president of University Advancement exists to protect the University's image.
One aspect of the committee's work is the creation of editorial standards. Through their use, individuals within the campus community will be able to maintain consistency and accuracy when communicating with Illinois State's constituencies, be it through print or the Web.
This document is unique to Illinois State and is the first reference to be used when creating/editing text. Beyond these standards, the University follows The Associated Press Stylebook and Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.
Questions regarding the work of the Identity Committee in general, or a specific editorial guideline, should be sent by email to Identity@IllinoisState.edu.
