Primary University Logo
School Spirit Logo
A well-designed logo system helps us tell our story, the stories of our students, faculty, and alumni, in every medium available to us.
- The overall brand identity allows for differentiation of our individual campuses while still maintaining our strength and image as a single university.
- Comprised of components that work independently from each other, the logo supports special campaigns, partnerships, and limited edition designs.
Downloadable files are available on the logo files page.

“UA Southeast” may be used instead of “University of Alaska Southeast” to avoid confusion with “UAF”, which has a similar sound.

Branding of the University and its Campuses and Schools
Materials representing the UAS institution and its Schools as a whole must coordinate with current brand design set by the Creative Manager, UAS Enrollment Management. Examples of recruiting materials exhibiting current brand design are available.
Materials for specific programs may utilize a more individualized design style tailored to that particular program. All the logo use guidelines apply.
Consistency is Essential
Consistent branding across UAS and its Schools creates an overall image of mission clarity, coordination, and communication. Defining our university through consistent branding will raise our profile locally, regionally, statewide and nationally. Our goal is to unite the three campuses in Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka in one visual message. Together, we can build community and alumni pride and attract, enroll and graduate more students!
