NSU Style Manual
Nova Southeastern University's Division of Business Services (BSV) supports the university’s mission by providing a variety of services to NSU students, faculty and staff members, alumni, and guests. NSU requires that all university publications be proofread and produced through its Office of Printing and Publications, with brand oversight and creative/design direction provided by NSU's Public Relations, Marketing, and Creative Services team (PR/Marketing).
To begin a collaboration, please note the following new procedures.
All* NSU marketing communications projects should begin with a job request submitted through your college’s or unit’s marketing strategy account leader (part of the PR/Marketing team. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not sure who your account leader is.) Or, you can request a job yourself through the shared project management software system, Robohead. (Ask your account leader about this, or visit nova.edu/prmc/creative.html for helpful hints and a link to the portal.)
*Orders still processed directly by Printing and Publications include• Ariba orders for stationery or letterhead• Orders for existing specialty items that require no new design work (contact email@example.com)• Copy Center requests (contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
Daily huddles with the PR/Marketing team are used to review, assign, and advance new project requests. In many cases, particularly when the job is a printed piece, the project will be assigned to the Printing and Publications team for part or all of the work needed.
It is important for printed materials to communicate properly the university's professional image and identity. This is why our team also assists and monitors the university’s investment in specialty products in collaboration with the PR/Marketing team who must produce and/or approve of any/all new designs or uses of NSU logos or branded elements.
To this end, all promotional items must also be printed/produced by BSV-authorized vendor-partners. In addition to PR/Marketing, we work in tandem with all our fellow BSV units, including NSU’s Office of Procurement, Copy Center, and Mail Services, as three examples.
Collectively, we will help you find the best products and partners to get you the items you need, on time, and on budget.
