Brand Policies

This page contains information about Brand, Identity, Editorial, Social Media, and Digital Media policies and practices of Fairfield University.

These policies reflect the University’s values, and we expect each employee and student to read the Brand Handbook carefully as it is a valuable reference for understanding your role at Fairfield University.

Fairfield University Marketing and Communication manages and maintains all official University websites and digital content sharing accounts.

By definition, social media marketing is the action of creating content to promote an entity publicly on various online platforms. When executed well at the University level, a sound social media strategy can help foster brand awareness, promote campus news and generate positive buzz, as well as build relationships for the sake of staying interconnected with our community.

PowerPoint and other presentation applications, like Canva and Prezi, are powerful tools for creating compelling and interactive messaging through the use of language, graphics, and multimedia. However, it is important to remember that overuse of the graphic applications could blur or crowd your message.
