NSSE Logo Use Policy


NSSE, FSSE, and BCSSE adopted new logos as of June 2010. It is not necessary to replace logos on previous reports and documents, but we suggest that any page that serves as an index to reports or products spanning multiple years should use the new logos.

Use of Logos

Institutions may use NSSE, FSSE, or BCSSE logos in their efforts to encourage students to participate in the survey. Institutions have used the logo on promotional materials such as:

  • posters and flyers
  • radio announcements
  • Web site news items or e-newsletters
  • YouTube videos
  • slide presentations
  • computer lab screensavers

Logos can also be incorporated into reports or studies of how NSSE results have been disseminated across campus, in Web displays of NSSE results, and in recruitment materials.

Find examples of materials that encourage survey participation and both print and Web examples how institutions have shared their results.

We encourage you to send us examples of the materials 
you are producing which feature any of the survey logos.


Purpose of Logo Use Policy

The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance on permissible use of NSSE, FSSE, and BCSSE logos.

  • Any individual, organization, or group wishing to use the NSSE, FSSE, or BCSSE logo must follow the permission guidelines below.
  • All requests to reproduce the NSSE, FSSE, or BCSSE logo require that you sign the “Terms of Use” agreement below.
  • Web-ready GIFs are available for immediate download and high resolution logos in multiple file formats, including .tif and .eps, can be requested via e-mail once you have submitted the “Terms of Use” agreement form.
