A consistent style is a hallmark of highly ranked academic institutions and an important part of the Samford University brand. It ensures consistency in use of unique university phrases, names and other key identifying terminology. Style also can be a sensitive issue because of personal preferences and discipline-specific options. A style manual has been developed for Samford University to help present a consistent identity for the university. The style manual provides guidance in the correct use of terms that specifically relate to academia and are in prevalent use across the campus. For items not found in this style manual, the current editions of the Associated Press Stylebook and Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary serve as the reference.
