What Not to Do

  • Do not use acronyms for the name of the school. Instead use “Graduate School of Public Health” on first reference, and then say “Pitt Public Health” or “the school.”
  • Do not use former school marks, symbols, or colors. For consistency and strength in our visual branding, use the University-created blue and gold Pitt Public Health graphics shown above, which support the overall Pitt brand.
