The UCCS masthead must appear at the top of every UCCS webpage, and must not be resized, rearranged, or altered in any way. The masthead can be built using either a customized wordmaker specific to your unit or the standard UCCS logo signature.


Four Background color options are available:

  • Black
  • Dark Gray
  • Light Gray
  • White

For mastheads with a customized wordmark, two arrangement options are available: one-line and two-line. The one-line version is for site titles with fewer than 40 characters; the two-line version can accommodate over 100 characters.
The name of the unit should be short and should not include divisional hierarchy, nor designations such as “Department of” or “Office of” except when such designations are necessary, to distinguish a center from an academic unit for example.

The search box on the right can be removed in situations where an additional search function may cause confusion. A smaller version of the searchbox and standard (non-customized) masthead using the single-line UCCS signature are available.

Web mastheads are for use on official UCCS websites only, and cannot be used on unofficial sites or reproduced in print. Only official artwork may be used; please do not attempt to recreate the artwork.
