Logos & Templates
In November 2017, the WSU Board of Regents voted to approve a change to the official name of our college from the College of Pharmacy to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPPS). We began using our full name and new logo in July 2018.
The WSU official font for printed letters is ITC Stone Serif Medium. If you do not have this font series installed on your work station please contact the pharmacy IT helpdesk to request the font. Cost for the font install is $40, billed to your department budget. For complete information on official WSU fonts, click here.
The letterhead Word document files should neither be sent as an attachment nor printed. They are optimized to be saved as a PDF and emailed to your recipients as an attachment.
For letterhead and business card ordering information, visit the Ordering and Purchasing webpage.
The official graphic signature (logo) of the University consists of two elements:
- the logotype (words Washington State University)
- and the shield mark (letters W, S, and U arranged to form a cougar head framed by a shield accented by a cevron)
The logotype and mark are designed to be used as a single unit, as shown, for most communications.

College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences logos
This signature option emphasizes the name of the department, center, institute, or college. The primary institutional identifiers — the shield mark and the custom-typeset words Washington State University — complement the unit name.
Some colleges may prefer that the name of the college, rather than a department, center, or institute name, is featured when this option is chosen. Check with your college communications manager to find out.
Abbreviated unit logo – limited use only
Abbreviated signatures are for limited use only, primarily when these conditions are present:
- Space or reproduction considerations make it difficult to incorporate the complete version of the signature, such as when creating some types of branded merchandise (pens, key chains, lapel pins, etc.).
- The communication will be directed to audiences (usually local or regional) already familiar with WSU who will recognize the university’s academic mark.
Health Sciences Spokane
Both “Health Sciences” and “Health Sciences Spokane” are approved CPPS logo variations.
WSU shield mark – use for internal communication
For guidelines on when to use the shield mark, and when to use the free standing cougar head, visit our brand website and click on “details” under the “shield and spirit marks” heading.
