It is important for all of us including Texas A&M International
University students, faculty, staff, administration and the external community to understand the appropriate use of the University seal, wordmarks and mascot. Correct usage of University marks will help us send a consistent message to our audiences while protecting the University’s marks against unauthorized uses.
Also, failure to comply with University guidelines regarding the use of its name or other registered marks may result in legal action.
Please assist us in monitoring the use of the University marks. If you have any questions about correct usage of the University seal, wordmarks or mascot, please contact the Office of Public Affairs & Information Services at 326.2180.
