The official UNT System seal is the most important, formal symbol belonging to the System. Per Regent’s Rule 04.803, the seal is reserved for the highest and most formal communication and for ceremonial, commemorative and promissory purposes.
The Director of Communications is responsible for ensuring the appropriate use of the seal. Board of Regent approval is required for revision to the seal.
The UNT System seal is reserved for the following items:
- UNT System Board of Regent Board Briefings.
- UNT System Board of Regent Board Orders.
- Ceremonial documents, such as awards and proclamations.
- Commemorative objects created for limited distribution, and made out of durable high-quality materials. Examples include plaques, medallions and commemorative crystal paperweights.
- Permanent signage in limited usage, such as at the main entryway to the UNT System headquarters, but not on exterior building signs and not in less-formal settings.
- Financial documents such as the official system budgets, checks, system-issued securities and other financial papers, where it is essentially a mark of guarantee.
- Contracts and documents that require the signature of the Chancellor or the Chancellor’s designees.
- Approved UNT System business cards, both printed and electronic.
- Approved UNT electronic communication or presentation pieces.
