To ensure clear and consistent messaging from the university, the editorial guidelines listed below are designed to assist and inform campus communicators in the preparation of copy for general audiences. Most importantly, using good judgment and discretion in all communications is vital to representing the university in a positive and effective manner. Bradley University also requires the use of language that is not prejudiced, discriminatory, stereotypes or limits the views of any people or groups.
With a few exceptions, Bradley's editorial guidelines are based on the Associated Press Stylebook. If a topic is not covered in the entries listed below, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications for assistance.
