These guidelines are to be used by members of the Saint Mary’s University community in all print and digital communications intended for both internal and external use, including way-finding and signage. The goal of adhering to the Saint Mary’s University Style Guide is to achieve consistency and professionalism across the institution.

This style guide is not meant to replace academic style guides for classwork, assignments, research publications and the like. In academic contexts, students should consult with your course professor about which academic style guide you should use.
