Notice body

The Department of Defense, or DoD, has recently reminded its various educational partners, including Auburn University, that institutions may not display the “Official Seals” of the DoD as well as its military departments (i.e., Army, Navy, Air Force, and the U.S. Marine Corps) in or on publications, brochures, websites and so forth. The DoD recognizes that these seals may be being displayed to show support or partnership, but reminds its academic partners that these trademarked images may not be displayed without permission. Any faculty, staff or students using these seals on any of our institutional materials or websites should cease to do so, effective immediately. Auburn University is committed to compliance with the terms of our Voluntary Education Partnership agreement and with DoD policy. If you have questions or would like additional information, including steps for obtaining authorization for using DoD trademarks, go to this website or contact Lt. Gen. Ron Burgess (USA) retired, Auburn University Senior Counsel for National Security Programs, Cyber Programs and Military Affairs at (334) 844-6140.
