Using the brand in a consistent way is essential to ensure we break through with our positioning and promise.  Our University Brand & Marketing Team hosts sessions when there are major updates to the brand and/or if you would like a specific presentation to a certain group.  It is recommended that new employees or work study students watch the brand training video if their job includes social media, graphic design, writing or any form of content creation.

Courses are also offered regarding usage of the Brand Templates (PowerPoint and Word). Find the playlist here: Leveraging the York Branded Templates - Playlist
