Branded Publication Templates

Each year across UAA, thousands of print and electronic publications are produced for external distribution. The print publication templates provided here are a tool for UAA employees wanting to create branded materials for their areas. As a part of UAA’s overall brand effort, these templates will help ensure consistency and accuracy in the use of the university’s visual identity.  

Template files are available for use in Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word and PowerPoint formats. Most of the InDesign template designs include both bleed (color prints to the edges of the document) and non-bleed (color stops at a white border around the edges) options. The Word templates are all non-bleed. A prior working knowledge of InDesign will make these templates much easier to use.

This list of templates will continue to grow as we create more templates, so please check back regularly for new design and publication options. If you don’t see a template file that fits your need, contact University Relations for further assistance.

Fonts

The font family Roboto Condensed is the font used in all templates. Make sure to download and install all fonts before opening and working with a template file. If the fonts do not appear in your font menu, you may need to restart your program if it was open while you installed the fonts.


UAA Textures

UAA Colored Textures

A background patterned texture is often used in UAA’s branded look. Here is a packet of premade color corrected textures in a variety of sizes and shapes to use. Higher-resolution versions of these are availble upon request.

Dot pattern textures

A gradient halftone dot pattern is another texture often used. All the textures in this set are in a transparent PNG file format. This texture is most commonly used to overlay the above texture, photos or other items. Textures comes in three levels of tranparency (30%, 50% and 100%) and this transparency effect helps the textures to merges more subtly with what is below it. Color choices are in the UAA standard colors plus black and white. You will also find included a user guide explaining how to use these files in Word on both PCs and Macs. Non-angled versions of these files are also available upon request.

Required EO/AA Statement and Notice of Nondiscrimination

The Office for Civil Rights requires schools and colleges to implement specific and continuing steps to inform students and others of the protections against discrimination on the basis of sex. The notification must state that the requirement of nondiscrimination in educational programs and activities extends to employment and admission. It also must say that questions about Title IX may be referred to the employee designated to coordinate Title IX compliance or to the assistant secretary for civil rights.

Universities are required to include a statement of nondiscriminatory policy in any bulletins, announcements, publications, catalogs, application forms, or other recruitment materials that are made available to participants, students, applicants, or employees including but not limited to:

  • academic catalogs
  • student handbooks
  • residence life handbooks
  • employee handbooks
  • athletic handbooks
  • applications for admission
  • applications for employment

This information also needs to be in any publication that mentions or describes sex discrimination policies, procedures, or prohibitions.

The University of Alaska notice comes in three different sizes, which to use depends on usage and audience. Visit the UA Title IX compliance page for full details and exact text to use:

University of Alaska Notice of Nondiscrimination.

 

An optional sentence may be added: In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, this material is available in alternate formats upon request.

The accreditation statement can also be included: The University of Alaska Anchorage is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
