WSU VISUAL IDENTITY STANDARDS

WSU Writing Style Guide:

Standards for consistency in WSU communications


Wichita State University follows the Associated Press Stylebook for all public communications, with a few university-specific modifications.

In general, however, any material sent out to the masses in an effort to inform -- whether news releases covering an event, publicly viewed features online, business writing or marketing materials -- should be based on the AP Stylebook.

Copies of the current AP Stylebook are available through the University Bookstore.

The goal of the WSU Writing Style Guide is to provide help on that which is not addressed in AP style and that which is an exception to AP.
