The Words

The most important principles in writing for UTHSC are clarity, accuracy and consistency. To assist our communicators, the Communications and Marketing Department has prepared this Editorial Style Guide. It is a quick reference tool to be used when writing about UTHSC for print and electronic media or any other outlets.

As a general rule, the UTHSC Communications and Marketing Department follows Associated Press (AP) style. There are, however, several exceptions that are unique to UTHSC. These are specified in the UTHSC Style and Usage Guide.
