University Name and Seal The name "University of California" is the property of the state. The use of the name or any abbreviation of it or any name of which these words are a part is governed by the education code of the state of California, the Bylaws of The Regents of the University of California and UC policy. Unauthorized use of the name (or any abbreviation of it or any name of which these words are a part) is a misdemeanor. In general the use of the university name and unofficial corporate seal are restricted to official university purposes that support the university's mission. They may not be used to designate another business or organization or explicitly or implicitly endorse, oppose or support commercial businesses or religious or political organizations, movements, or activities. At UCSB, the campus policy coordinator has been delegated the authority to approve the use of the unofficial corporate seal and the use of the name of the University of California, Santa Barbara (or any abbreviation of it or any name of which these words are a part). To request the use of the university name and unofficial corporate seal you may contact the campus policy coordinator at 893- 4212.

II. University Letterhead, Business Cards and Electronic Communications University letterhead and business cards are for official university purposes. Their content and use are governed by the California Education code, the By-Laws of The Regents, and UC policy. Use for other than university purposes, such as for personal, commercial, political, or religious purposes, or on behalf of another organization would constitute misuse of university resources. The university upholds the principle of academic freedom of expression for individuals and groups within the university community. However, individuals and groups are not to present personal, political, or religious opinions in ways that imply endorsement by the University. Therefore, university letterhead is not to be used to convey personal, political, or religious opinions.
