University Identity

University Name

For external publications, always use the full “Fairleigh Dickinson University” name for the first mention. “FDU” can be used for subsequent mentions. Exceptions to this rule are allowed for Twitter/social media, text messages, and other situations where characters are severely limited. In those cases, “FDU” is acceptable for the first mention.

For internal publications, either “Fairleigh Dickinson University,” “the University” or “FDU” is acceptable.

Do not use periods when Fairleigh Dickinson University is abbreviated. (FDU –yes; F.D.U. –no).

When the University’s full name is used, it should appear entirely on the same line:

(Fairleigh Dickinson University –yes; Fairleigh
Dickinson University –no).
