Editorial Style Manual

WHITTIER COLLEGE'S publications represent the College to the rest of the world. Because of this, written style and graphic standards are vital parts of our image. This guide applies to print. A similar guide for online content is under development.

We’re one institution, and it is important we show consistency in the way we present our programs and services. Although this style manual is for use primarily by those in the Whittier College community who create documents or publications for external audiences, it is useful as a set of guidelines for internally distributed materials as well.

This manual is also meant to be a fluid document, updated often to reflect current usage and changes on campus. We welcome comments and suggestions to help us keep it current, relevant, and useful.

This guide has been produced by, and maintained by the Whittier College Office of Communications, mediarelations@whittier.edu.
