Sending the Right Message

Please refer to the Messaging tab to learn about Northeastern's messaging, editorial style and approved statements. The five key message points are highlighted in this section to help guide you in creating content for the Web and publications. Editorial standards cover frequently used word choices, Northeastern-specific naming conventions, and common grammar and punctuation rules. The Approved Statements About the University section includes authorized statements to be used as written in communication pieces; for example, the University's mission and vision statements.

Elemental Breakdown

The Graphic Elements tab is your “one stop shop” to learn about Northeastern's official visual elements. You will be able to access and download graphic components such as Northeastern's logo and social media icons.
