Notice to Student Organizations

Use of the University of Tennessee’s name, image, logos or other trademarks in conjunction with a student organization name implies association with the University. Therefore, only those student organizations that are officially recognized by the Dean of Students Office are permitted to use University of Tennessee trademarks in conjunction with their name. To ensure consistency in the use of the University’s name and logos, all products, signage, or packaging bearing reference to the University of Tennessee must be produced by manufacturers licensed through the University’s licensing agent, the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC). For a list of approved internal campus suppliers and licensees please click here. Additionally, per University policy, all artwork must be pre-approved by the Office of Trademark Licensing prior to production of applicable items.

If you wish to sell a product bearing the University’s name, image, logos or other trademarks as part of a philanthropic or other fundraising event, you must submit a solicitation request and receive approval through the Dean of Student’s Office. For more information concerning this process, please click here. Please note that failure to submit a solicitation request within seven working days prior to the event will result in disapproval. Additionally, sale of merchandise bearing University marks without prior approval will result in action against your student organization.
