Get your official IU signature
Campus and university-wide signatures are available for download free of charge. Order your unit’s signature package here.
Complete the signature request form.
A member of the IU Communications staff may call or email you to confirm your request and clarify any questions.
IU Communications will submit a draft signature to you.
After you approve the signature, the files will be posted to a website for downloading.
You will receive an email notice that the final signatures are available at a specific web URL.
Once a signature is created, it will remain on our server along with other units’ signatures. You are strongly encouraged to download and archive signatures on a departmental computer or server for easy reference.
To expedite your request, please assemble the following information before completing the form.
Identify three or fewer levels of information that need to be conveyed in your signature. Often these include a campus name, a school or administrative unit name, and a departmental or division name.
Identify the order in which you would like information to be conveyed in the primary, secondary, and tertiary fields. See the signatures section for standards.
Each signature includes a set of unit names displayed in hierarchical order. Additional signatures, with names in a different order, consistent with the style guide, may be requested.
Understand how your unit is situated in the IU organization. You may be asked to answer questions about the campus(es) and/or school(s) where your unit resides, whether your unit is a division or a department, the exact and official spelling of your unit’s name, etc.
Only official titles should be used in signatures (e.g., “Department of History” instead of “History Department”).
Identify an account number to be billed for the signature.
