Photo and Video Guidelines and Releases
A hallmark of the University brand is professional photography that features a rich, vibrant and highly-saturated look, often incorporating tilt-shift or selective focus techniques. Strive to showcase a diversity of real faculty, staff and students. Use stock photography only when no appropriate images can be sourced from the University's Flickr account. And, consider if a video/photo release is required. View University photographer information, photo release guidelines, and individual, group and online photo release forms.

"Risk account" is the term used for new account setups or modifications to current accounts in order to enable the charging of allowable project costs in the absence of certain award documentation from a sponsor. The principal investigator (PI) may request that Sponsored Projects set up a new financial worktag or modify an existing financial worktag to include a limited budget for a 90-day period for one of three purposes as defined in this policy.

University logos, signatures and identifiers
The Block N is the core element of the University's official academic brand. It should appear on all print and digital pieces. The Block N logo is the University's logo mark. The University's logotype is "University of Nevada, Reno." Combined, they are the University's main signature. College, unit and department identifiers feature the University's main signature. The Block N logo, the University signature, and college, unit and department identifiers should never be altered in any way (including their colors). They should have clear space all of the way around them, and they should not fall below minimum size. Secondary logos should not be created; they are not permitted by the University Administrative Manual. Download horizontal and vertical positive and reversed Block N, University signature, and college, department and unit identifier logos in PNG and EPS file formats.
