Maintaining a strong and recognizable brand is a key component to NIU's success in student enrollment. We created this guide to make it easier for you to correctly and consistently represent the NIU brand when you develop new communications. Building and maintaining the Northern Illinois University brand identity is an institutional priority set by the president and managed by the Division of Enrollment Management, Marketing and Communications.

Please submit all print and digital communications to the Clearinghouse Review at least three days before the communication is due.
