There are often instances in which Western Oregon University employees need to write about, speak about or otherwise represent WOU to a public audience. The resources in this section exist to help you find official information that can be easily shared.

For example, are you writing a letter or professional paper and need to include some basic background information about WOU? That’s when you want to choose a boilerplate option, which contains text that you can copy and paste as-is into your document.

Or, if you need help determining whether bachelor’s degree is capitalized with an apostrophe, our Editorial Style Guide is the place to look. Want to design a T-shirt for your student club’s volunteer event and want to see which WOU logo is right for that purpose? Check the Select the right logo guidelines.

We hope you find these resources easy and helpful. If there is something you’d like to see included, contact
