Protecting our UTHSC Brand! It's a BIG deal

Student groups and organizations often do not realize all that they need to do before producing and selling an item such as a T-shirt. First, they must submit the design for their art to the UTHSC Communications and Marketing Department for review. After Communications and Marketing has reviewed, edited and approved the design, it then must be submitted to the UTHSC Office of Student Affairs. All student fund-raising projects, even when they don't include the UTHSC brand, must first be approved by the UTHSC Office of Student Affairs. The Office of Trademark Licensing will provide an updated list of approved vendors from which to choose at  http://licensing.tennessee.edu/. Vendors who do not appear on the list are not approved to print items with the UTHSC brand.

Dr. Susan Brewer will be hosting an afternoon info-session on "Fundraising Hurdles & Campus Regulations" for COM student group and organization leaders. Class officers (presidents, vice-presidents, secretaries and treasurers) are also expected to attend. Group/organization leaders and class officers are asked to RSVP responding to your MeetingWizard invitation or by contacting Alysia Danley (adanley1@uthsc.edu / 448-5684) directly. Time and location of meeting TBA.
