SCU Color Palette

The University's official color palette is an important element of our brand identity. Correct combination and usage of the palette's primary, supporting, and accent colors is vital to upholding the visual legacy of the SCU brand.

Because of the differences in computer monitors and computer video cards, the colors displayed below should be used only as guides. For the most accurate representation of colors, please check the physical Pantone Matching System (PMS) color chips, available in University Marketing and Communications.
