NEWS 

-- Out with the old, in with the new. This is a reminder that no department or office at RMU should be using the old logo, which has "Robert Morris University" written out and includes the Nicholson dome. Instead, all materials coming from the university should include the current version of the RMU logo, which includes the "RMU" initials and "Robert Morris" in the red banner. If you don't have a digital version of the new logo, you can download it off the RMU Brand Toolkit website. The RMU Brand Toolkit includes official logos, a photo library, print and promotional materials, downloadable Word and PowerPoint templates, web and social media guidelines, and instructions on leveraging the RMU brand.
