* The new PMS Plus Series Color Bridge is the new color set selected for the University. It's the best option when converting to a 4-c process. The rest of the color breakdowns reflect this change.

Accent Colors

In order to expand our breadth of design options and add variety to communications, a set of accent colors is now available. These colors are our secondary (accent) color set. They are not meant to be the lead colors on any publication; you must not use large floods of these colors on communication pieces.
