The educational outreach arm of South Dakota State University uses a customized SD lockup logo and should be correctly referenced as South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension. While the three-leaf emblem will be removed from the official logo, SDSU Extension will have the opportunity to continue to use it as a design element.
All official communications and marketing materials representing SDSU Extension, including but not limited to print media, merchandise, apparel, business forms, audio/visual media, displays, banners, signage, publications, advertising and electronic communications must include the appropriate logo. No previous versions of extension logos should be used under any circumstances.
SDSU Extension faculty and staff should consult Policies and Procedures to access guidelines and customized templates.
All printed materials from SDSU Extension are required to include a disclosure statement in one of the forms below. Consult Civil Rights policies for further guidance.
