Since its establishment in 1982, NC State University’s Trademark Licensing office has been charged with three primary roles:
Protect the trademarks, service marks, logos, symbols and indicia that belong to the university and that are associated with the values, purpose and traditions of NC State.
Promote the University through brand identity and public awareness that comes from the use of the trademarks.
Create revenue which support NC State students by providing funds to athletic, merit, and study abroad scholarships and need-based financial aid programs.
As these three roles are important to the University we have provided guidance, resources, and examples for licensees, students and university departments so that they can use the trademarks in accordance with the policies, rules, and regulations pertaining to NC State’s trademarks.
