Correct UseBack to Top
Texas Tech spirit and athletic marks help to promote the Texas Tech experience and should be used as such to reflect pride in our accomplishments and celebrate our rich traditions wherever appropriate. Examples would include non-academic program literature, promotional merchandise and apparel, decals, signs and banners. In addition, these marks can be used as important supporting elements in student recruitment materials and at events.
In general marketing and communication, look for opportunities to promote spirit and athletic marks by selecting photography that places them in the proper context. Those activities may include spirit events, Texas Tech University athletic competitions or TTUHSC students wearing spirit apparel.
These marks are primarily used to identify Texas Tech University athletic teams and spirit organizations at both universities. However, registered TTUHSC student organizations and departments may use these marks for in-house purposes (such as posters, signs, banners or brochures) that deal with on-campus activities. They may be used as a supporting spirit mark in academic materials, but they may not be used to singularly represent the academic unit. Use of the spirit marks must reflect positively on the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center licensed vendor of Texas Tech. Approval from the Director of Licensing is required.
Management and licensing use of these trademarked identities resides within the Athletic Department and is in partnership with the Collegiate Licensing Company. Contact Paige Holland with the Texas Tech University Athletics Department at (806) 742-1195 for all inquiries related to use of spirit and athletic marks. Questions regarding TTUHSC student organization's use of the trademark identities should be directed to Margret Duran at (806) 743-2300, ext. 228.
Additional information on policies and guidelines for in-house TTUHSC use may be obtained from licensing guidelines published by the Texas Tech University Athletics Department available on its website under the athletic department link.
Incorrect UseBack to Top
In order to establish and maintain a clear distinction between the athletic offerings of Texas Tech University and TTUHSC, spirit and athletic marks should not be used as primary identifiers for the TTUHSC and its schools, departments, programs, centers or institutes in an academic context. Examples would include academic paper systems, academic brochures and academic websites. Other examples of inappropriate use would be replacing the Texas Tech coat of arms a spirit mark in an academic signature, placing a spirit mark at a comparable size and in close proximity to an academic identity, and otherwise compromising clear distinctions between these two important symbols in academic communication.
The Double T and our Academic
Back to Top
Coat of Arms, a Powerful Pair
The Double T plays a vital role in promoting the spirit of the Texas Tech experience and in identifying the nationally competitive athletic programs at Texas Tech University, and we should always use it to express our pride and celebrate or traditions. It has gained increased national awareness through NCAA Big 12 Conference play, and with the introduction of our new Academic Coat of Arms we now have an opportunity to bring visibility to our equally competitive academic programs at TTUHSC. Think of both of these as a powerful pair of complementary identities that help to define and differentiate Texas Tech.
