In order to establish a consistent identity across all UIC websites, here are some guidelines to follow:

  • Logo use and placement: All UIC websites need to use the appropriate logo from the UIC logo system prominently at the top of every website.
  • Link to uic.edu: All websites should contain a link to UIC homepage.
  • Contact information: Websites should have a “Contact Us” page that contains information such as a unit’s phone number, e-mail address, and postal address. If appropriate, a staff directory should also be included.
  • Copyright: Material on official UIC websites is the property of the university and should be identified as such to protect copyright. The approved format for copyright is as follows: Copyright © 20xx (list appropriate year) The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois.
