As faculty and staff in the Michigan State University College of Education, we each play an integral role in communicating about the university and the college to various audiences.
Effective, consistent communication helps us
- Recruit outstanding students and faculty,
- Attract donors and other external funding sources,
- Achieve recognition for our accomplishments and
- Demonstrate how we impact schools, communities and the world.
The resources found here are intended to supply information, tools and access to the elements that can help us achieve these goals.
As a first step, please remember that the College of Education’s messages and materials should always align with the MSU Brand Guidelines, which can be viewed at brand.msu.edu.
Let’s get started.
Who do we communicate with?
- Highly qualified undergraduate teacher candidates from Michigan, the U.S. and beyond
- Future athletic trainers and kinesiology majors preparing for health-related careers
- Top-caliber, diverse master’s and doctoral student candidates dedicated to intellectual development, research and service within the many disciplines represented by the college
- Prospective faculty members: Potential colleagues who are leading researchers in their fields and committed to teaching and service
- Peers and disciplinary leaders: Deans and professors at other higher education institutions, particularly other high-ranking schools and colleges of education
- Practitioners: Working educators (superintendents, principals, teachers) and other professionals (school psychologists, student advisors, fitness consultants, etc.) across the state, nation and world. They are our partners, our prospective students, our alumni and the users of our research knowledge.
- Policymakers and influencers: This includes state and U.S. lawmakers, leaders of professional organizations and educational leaders as noted above.
- Funding sources: Individuals, families, foundations and government agencies seeking to advance knowledge and support students through gifts, grants and other resources
- Alumni: Graduates who want to stay connected and who are capable of aiding the college with their experience, talent-spotting, donor support and employment opportunities
- Each other: Faculty and staff within the College of Education.
What is the MSU brand?
The MSU brand speaks to the determination Spartans have to make a meaningful difference in our lives and in the lives of others. It celebrates our excellence, aspirations and commitment to make a better tomorrow for our students, for Michigan and for the world.
The brand is the foundation from which Spartans communicate who we are, what we stand for and the impact we make.
MSU communications, including brand messages and visual assets, reflect our Spartan community and support the university’s strategic plan.
Positioning and Personality
Our positioning statement helps articulate and distinguish the unique value of the College of Education:
The College of Education’s smart, passionate people and collaborative culture of high achievement prepares leaders to make an extraordinary impact on health, well-being and education around the world.
Across the college, a key theme describes our people and programs: Prepared to Lead
Telling our story
We incorporate elements of and ideas related to the MSU and college branding into communications materials to describe, for example, our academic expectations, how research is conducted by our faculty and students, or what our graduates are able to achieve.
Here are key messages that express why the College of Education is distinctive and, more importantly, a place where people are prepared to lead in whatever they do. This is in line with how the university suggests we share brand stories.
Passionate, Talented People
We have a passion to make a difference.
We prepare professionals to become leaders in their fields. We expect and support the highest levels of achievement from ourselves, without pretense. No challenge is beneath us—or too big to tackle—if it makes a difference in people’s lives.
We are forward-thinking change agents.
We have a track record of innovative thinking. Our research and teaching has the power to challenge assumptions, create groundbreaking discoveries and transform how things are done.
We are team players.
We have the skill and are always willing to work together with schools, universities and communities to bridge connections between theory and practice. Getting the best results and creating capacity for the future is more important to us than getting all the credit.
We produce leading talent.
Our college is recognized for producing professionals who enact change in their communities. We are known for award-winning educators and coaches; for writing the book (sometimes literally!) on best practices and innovative ideas; for interdisciplinary collaboration; for leading the way, all with the goal of making the world a better place.
Inclusive, Collaborative Community
All Spartans belong here.
You are welcome at Michigan State University and the College of Education. Our inclusive culture encourages mutual respect and the creative power of diverse ideas, viewpoints and backgrounds. We celebrate individuals and empower them to create their own paths of achievement. We are committed to creating knowledge, promoting social justice and improving health and education for all people—and we will lead others by example.
Our power is our collective strength.
Every educator, coach, well-being professional, leader, thinker and doer can make a difference in the world. Together, what we can achieve is extraordinary.
We partner for impact.
We have the skill and are always willing to work together with schools, universities and communities to bridge connections between theory and practice. Getting the best results and creating capacity for the future is more important to us than getting all the credit. Our horizons are global and we seek opportunities to make a difference through cross-cultural connections and projects. We prepare graduates to succeed within diverse contexts, both at home and abroad.
Academic & Research Excellence
We offer top programs—and an exceptional experience.
MSU has been ranked among the best in the nation and globally for education and kinesiology by several rankings bodies and organizations. But we are so much more than our numbers. We’re also a community of passionate, caring and supportive Spartans who are here to not only make the world better, but to help you along your journey here.
We provide access to excellence and opportunity.
If you can imagine it, it can happen at MSU.
We are leaders in research and innovation.
It’s in our DNA to solve practical problems, moving beyond analysis to promote policy reform and assist in implementation. We are committed to improving how educators and health professionals serve the world. We believe in the power of learning and the potential of every person. We seek to understand how people learn and develop so we can best use that knowledge to benefit all people.
Writing About The College
We foster leadership by communicating like leaders, using simple, clear and direct language. Go for shorter sentences and fewer adjectives. We communicate not only with academics but with students and working professionals. We engage in conversations, not one-way communication.
Ask yourself: Will my brochure/website/article/etc. help make the College of Education and its programs/units come across as a dynamic community, where collaboration is embraced and people are truly committed to being prepared?
Does this show how we are prepared to improve teaching and learning, to advance human potential, to meet future challenges or — in other words —b e leaders?
This is short, standard language that briefly describes the institution and its priorities. This may be used without alteration in any document including, for example, grant proposals, materials created for events or by outside organizations partnering with the College of Education, on promotional materials for specific programs or offices/institutes.
College of Education:
The College of Education at Michigan State University is a community of students, educators and researchers prepared to meet the challenges of education and kinesiology. We are committed to improving practice together through exemplary research, teaching and service. With a renowned Teacher Preparation Program, rigorous training for health-related careers and several nationally ranked graduate programs, the College of Education prepares leaders who make an extraordinary impact on health, well-being and education around the world.
Michigan State University:
Michigan State University has been advancing the common good with uncommon will for more than 165 years. One of the world’s leading research universities, MSU pushes the boundaries of discovery to make a better, safer, healthier world for all while providing life-changing opportunities to a diverse and inclusive academic community through more than 400 programs of study in 17 degree-granting colleges.
Note: A longer version of the MSU boilerplate is available.
Remember: A brand is not a single logo or particular tagline.
However, the official MSU tagline, Spartans Will., may be used by all units on campus without alteration. Learn how to use Spartans Will. in the MSU Brand Guide.
In addition, College of Education faculty and units may use the College of Education message, Come prepared to learn, leave prepared to lead on various advertisements, flyers, email communications, etc. Please do not change the text in any way. Contact Lauren Knapp for guidance on when and how to use this phrase.
The word Spartan or Spartans is also encouraged to maximize the effect of the university’s name and identify. Example: Become a Spartan teacher.
Editorial Style Guide
To help establish consistency in language, see the Editorial Style Guide for terms and phrases used frequently by the College of Education. This has been adapted from the main MSU Editorial Style Guide. Also, see the section on Tone for writing tips.
To ask questions or suggest additions to the college editorial guide, contact Lauren Knapp.
Graphics and Logos
Logos for individual units at Michigan State University are discouraged and should never be used on communication materials to external audiences (i.e. alumni, prospective students, other institutions, news media). This includes the former College of Education logo with its mortar board and blue tassel, as well as any individual logos used by departments, centers, programs and so forth.
For all forms of external communication, the MSU wordmark MUST appear (on the front or back cover in print, or in the footer for web sites). Again, no other MSU-related “logos” are permitted. However, MSU provides a signature system that contains three different ways in which units may officially identify themselves in conjunction with the MSU wordmark or the Spartan Helmet. Versions of this for the College of Educaton and its four departments are available below.
The MSU wordmark below is suitable for most applications.

Again, examples and instructions for using MSU logos and marks – including downloadable versions of the wordmark, seal, block “S” and helmet – are available in the MSU Brand Guide.
The college maintains a database of professionally photographed images that are available, upon request, for use by departments, programs and individual offices. Updated regularly, this collection represents a range of college-specific subjects, including buildings and landscapes, events, faculty and staff, technology, students, research, outreach and alumni.
Rather than acquiring images from stock photography sources, use of these images in printed materials and on college websites is preferred. To view what is currently available or to make a specific photo shoot request, please contact Trevor Hawks or email the the Communications Team.
The Michigan State University photo library is viewable at www.photos.msu.edu, and the communications office can acquire high-resolution images on your behalf.
Main MSU brand elements such as the Spartan helmet, Spartan shield, Spartan spear and copy bar with chevron can be downloaded from the MSU Brand Guide.
With assets available to create clean, professional-looking brand-aligned materials, the use of clip art or other externally generated graphics is not allowed.
While the official fonts of Michigan State University are Californian (serif) and Gotham (sans-serif), there are acceptable substitutions that are more commonly available. Georgia can be used in place of Californian, and the acceptable substitution for Gotham is Helvetica. The use of Georgia is recommended as the body copy for print publications, as serif typefaces are easiest to read in print.
The opposite is true of digital media and electronic forms of communications whereas Helvetica is the recommended font for body copy. Helvetica is also recommended for headline treatments as well as to highlight secondary pieces of information such as bulleted lists, photo captions or in graphs, tables or charts.
To see examples of the fonts and their usage, please visit the MSU Brand Guide.
NOTE: The font Myriad Pro is also permitted when used in conjunction with the MSU wordmark to display the name of an individual unit such as a department, office, center or institution. (See the section on Logos.)
The four primary colors that are used in college communications are as follows:
R:24 G:69 B:59
C:82 M:0 Y:64 K:70
R:99 G:149 B:103
C:65 M:24 Y:72 K:5
R:96 G:179 B:207
C:60 M:13 Y:13 K:0
R:201 G:192 B:161
C:22 M:20 Y:39 K:0
A list of suggested accent colors that can be used in combination with these primary colors can be found in the MSU Brand Guide.

If you need changes made or access to edit a website, please send us a message using our Web Service Requests form.
Building and Maintaining Websites
Working within the College Web Framework
It is important that all websites representing the College of Education look and feel similar. Cohesiveness throughout the College of Education’s websites not only reinforces our university and college brands, but also helps visitors to feel familiar and comfortable while navigating across all our college sites. In addition, consistency across websites makes the work of our web development team much more manageable. Our websites are constantly evolving and improving, and with so many sites and pages throughout the college it takes a lot of time to implement a change throughout. When our websites use the same back-end frameworks, we can most efficiently and effectively make changes and upgrades to all sites.
If you are in need of a new website within the College of Education web space, contact Lauren Knapp. Examples of websites that would be appropriate for using the College of Education web framework include departments, academic programs, centers, institutes, offices and labs. Other related websites that we do have resources for, but that would not be appropriate for the college website framework, include courses, student organizations, faculty websites and grant/project websites.
Existing Websites, News and Events
Keeping our college websites, news system and events calendar up-to-date and accurate is of the utmost importance. If you are tasked with updating content on a website within the College of Education, and need access to update that content, contact Lauren Knapp.
Editing Our Websites
- The goal is to maintain up-to-date and accurate content.
- Access to edit will need to be configured before the first time you use it. Please fill out a web request to get access to edit.
- Please look at the Training Slides for reference on how to make edits to the site
A few best practices for adding events to our College’s digital calendar:
- Make sure you search for an event before creating a new one to avoid duplication.
- Include contact information for all events.
- Make sure your event title is brief, yet descriptive.
How To Add Events – Tutorial Video
To assist calendar administrators in adding events to the college calendar, our office offers a complete step-by-step video tutorial. If you or a member of your team is interested in gaining access to the college calendar to add events, please contact the Communications Office at email@example.com.
How to print an events flyer:
Our online calendar system is now a one-stop location where you can promote your events on our website and create a flyer.
- Add your event to the college’s online calendar. Questions? Watch our step-by-step video tutorial or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- While logged into our online events system, navigate to the event(s) that you would like to publicize with a flyer. (Note: Only Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge are currently supported.)
- Print using “CTRL + P” or “CMD + P” or by selecting “Print” in the “File” menu dropdown.
- Make sure that the print is in “Portrait” style (not landscape, or oriented horizontally) and is limited to one page. (Note: Flyers with images will look more appealing if printed in color and including an image. Only one image is allowed in a print flyer.)
Want to recommend the inclusion of an event? Submit an event through the community event form.
I am interested in setting up a social media account for my unit.
If a department, program, office or other unit is considering setting up a social media account (or accounts), contact Digital Communications Manager Marco Schimizzi prior to creating any social media account.

If you are thinking about how you will support and reinforce the Michigan State University College of Education’s reputation and goals, you are ready to put the pieces together for specific projects. Does the communications piece:
- Clearly identify Michigan State University, and use the university wordmark and unit identification properly?
- Express the College of Education brand promise? Quick gut check: Does it show we are prepared to lead?
- Use approved colors, fonts and graphical elements?
- Have images that are up-to-date and, ideally, authentic (show actual College of Education people/programs)?
- Use the best medium for reaching your audience?
- Provide sufficient information for desired next steps (the call to action), such as website address, personal contact information or event details?
