The icon was established in 1986 and symbolizes membership in the UT family. It is a stylized treatment of the letters “U” and “T,” incorporating the shape of the state of Tennessee. The icon is the base for all UT System identification and wordmarks.
The UT icon should appear no smaller than one-quarter of an inch wide. It should be surrounded on all sides by an amount equal to the width of the upper “T” stroke. It may stand alone or be combined with the approved wordmark.
No other combinations are permitted.
The icon should be rendered only in one of these color options:
- UT Orange (PMS 151)
- Solid black (for black-and-white print materials)
- Solid white (when icon needs to be reversed on a dark background)
No other colors are permitted. Click here for information on using campus-specific background colors.
