The official seal of Iowa State University represents the university’s history as a land-grant university. The seal includes the verbiage “Science with Practice” within the circle, with “Iowa State University of Science and Technology” on the outer portion.

The use of the seal is restricted to official documents signed by the University President and selected high-end consumer products on a case by case basis. The seal cannot replace the Iowa State University wordmark, which should appear on all external communications, websites and other branded communications.

The Office of University Marketing is responsible for approving all uses of the university seal. A request for use must be made to the Director of University Marketing,
