Vintage Collection

The Vintage Collection is under a separate agreement for licensees who maintain a standard license and are in good standing. These marks are for the retail market and represent the historical brands of the university. Because they no longer represent the current university brand and mission as a leader in higher education and research, the Office of University Marketing must grant any waiver of internal use, and allowance would only be for historical reference. 


Included with each mark is a "vintage stamp" similar to the image below. With the trademark notice on clothing or other items, each graphic includes the date of first known use.
