School/College/Central Unit Logos

The unit logos combine the UAB logo and a school/college/central unit identifier in a single graphic image. In order to establish greater brand consistency — and with the understanding that many people who see our communications are not familiar with the UAB acronym — President Watts has asked that we use the full university name in the logo and limit lockups to UAB schools, colleges, and central (VP-level) units.

Logos are limited to the following schools/colleges/central units:

Central Units (at VP levels):

  • Research
  • Advancement
  • Provost
  • Financial Affairs & Administration
  • Student Affairs
  • Information Technology
  • University Relations
  • President
  • Libraries
  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion


  • Collat School of Business
  • College of Arts & Sciences
  • School of Dentistry
  • School of Education
  • School of Engineering
  • Graduate School
  • School of Health Professions
  • Honors College
  • School of Medicine
  • School of Nursing
  • School of Optometry
  • School of Public Health

University Relations will produce standard and centered versions of the school, college, and central unit logos, along with versions sized for social channel profiles.

Centers and Institutes

Centers and institutes with multiple funding sources — such as multi-institution grants — may have a compelling need for their own brand. These entities may be granted sub-brand status within UAB's brand standards. Lockups for centers and institutes will be at the discretion of University Relations.
