Logos

UC Davis logos are the primary identifiers of the university's academic and administrative units. There are formal conventions for unit marks at all levels of the institution. Disciplined use of this program ensures that each unit benefits from the reputation of the enterprise, and that the enterprise, in turn, shares in the credit for the great work being done throughout the UC Davis community.
