The Institutional Seal is an official symbol that represents the university’s traditions, hallmarks, and aspirations. Any use of the seal must be approved by the RSUPR office.
The seal is most often used by the Office of the President and Office of Academic Affairs. It often can be seen on official documents, lapel pins, watermark stamping or podiums.
The seal features a line drawing of Preparatory Hall, the university’s oldest building, completed in 1909, the year the institution was founded. Preparatory Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The seal also features the official university credo, “Tradition, Innovation, Excellence.”
The seal should only appear in PMS Blue #288 or Black, and no other color. (Some exceptions may be made for gold or reverse printing.)
The University Credo, comprised of the words “Tradition, Innovation, Excellence,” is used to communicate the university’s core values and academic philosophy. The credo is featured in the official university seal. Any use of the credo must be approved by the RSUPR office. The credo is most often used by the Office of the President and Office of Academic Affairs.
