Kent State University Seal | Kent State University

The Kent State University seal indicates official sanction of the Office of the President and is reserved for use on limited communications pieces from the Board of Trustees, the Office of the President, the executive officers of the university and deans.

The seal does not provide the instant recognition offered by the university logo and, therefore, should not be used interchangeably with the Kent State logo. The seal should not be used in daily communications by departments or programs. The seal may not be altered or reconfigured in any way. Portions of the seal may not be used separately as art or design elements. All applications of the Kent State seal need to be approved by University Communications and Marketing by calling 330-672-2727 or emailing info@kent.edu.
