Jayhawk OK again on KU business cards

September 6, 2006


Kansas University faculty and staff can keep the Jayhawk on their business cards.

Lynn Bretz, university communications director, said KU now will permit use of the Jayhawk logo on business cards - a reversal of previous plans barring the bird from all business cards except those used by the athletic department and Alumni Association.

Under the old plan - part of a "visual identity" overhaul - faculty and staff were required to use the official "KU" logo on business cards.

Bretz said she discussed the issue with faculty and staff and determined it was best to give them the option to use the Jayhawk or the "KU" signature.

Bretz was promoted to her position in July after Paul Carttar's job of executive vice chancellor for external affairs was dissolved and Carttar moved to the post of special assistant to the chancellor.

to have a jayhawk or not to have a jayhawk?.....hmmmm, so much importance, what is one to do? after much consultation and personal reflection sometimes the big decision needs to be made. okay, keep the jayhawk on the freaking business cards!

i can sleep well knowing my hard earned tax dollars are employing important people making important for the $100,000 helvetica (or whatever) type style of the "KU," now that's another thing of great importance. again, money well spent. NOT!

Believe it or not, there were some upset faculty when they were told the Jayhawk couldn't be used on their business cards. It was serious business up on the hill.

hey, thanks Bob M, you stood up and communicated. the jayhawk is not just a jock. Ku is not just a sport arena, the Jayhawk should represent the people who make KU their home. It is a bit of fun and a bit of history.
