Editorial Style Guide

First impressions make a difference. Printed and online publications, distributed to internal and external audiences, are a vital part of our image. While we are a mix of colleges and institutes, centers and programs, we are one university — the University of Houston — and it is important to show consistency in the way we present ourselves.

This guide is based upon the Associated Press 2016 Stylebook. Please refer to it for any questions not answered here. The dictionary of choice is the Webster's New World College Dictionary, Fourth Edition. University-preferred style also is included in this guide.
