- All University departments have to adhere by the style guide.
But when used to denote a common noun, it is:

Santa Clara or SCU is acceptable on second reference. Don't use University alone on first reference. In press releases,"university" will be lowercased in all cases when it is a stand-alone element, uppercased when used after "Santa Clara."
