Campus and County Branding Guidelines

North Carolina is home to two land-grant institutions, NC State University and N.C. A&T State University. Each school operates individual Extension units — NC State Extension and Cooperative Extension at N.C. A&T — which provide programming both independently and as a strategic partnership called N.C. Cooperative Extension.

When planning our marketing efforts, we must be mindful of each university’s distinctive brand identity; how and when they co-exist as N.C. Cooperative Extension; and when to use one brand identity or another.

Review guidelines below to help you consistently brand appropriately. A simple rule of thumb is to “follow the funding.”

  • Should follow the N.C. Cooperative Extension brand guidelines. This applies to county-based employees and all 101 local centers, which always involve partnerships with local government (even if only one university staffs the center).
N.C. Cooperative Extension is a strategic partnership comprising NC State and N.C. A&T State universities, along with local, state and federal governments.
