The University’s Sign Master Plan provides design guidelines for all exterior signage types.
Applicants are expected to consult the Sign Master Plan before making a submission to the SCE Committee. Below are a series of addendum guidelines to the Sign Master Plan that also should be considered before making a submission.
- Banners are to be used to herald special events or milestones and can be left in place for no more than one year.
- Building Identification Signs can include the name of the school(s) housed within the building at the owner’s request, but only if the name of the school is not already included in the name of the building. In instances where buildings house multiple schools, school names will be listed alphabetically.
- Gateway and large institutional identity signs will be reviewed by the SCE Committee and forwarded to the University’s Executive Leadership Group for approval.
- Large building signs should follow the Sign Master Plan guidelines, but exceptions will be considered where color and materials may need to deviate in order to be visible against a building.
Schools and units who want to install donor signs should get the advice of the SCE committee early in their design process to ensure donor signage is consistent with University standards. Recognizing the unique nature of these signs, the standard format, letter type, and color may be waived by the SCE Committee. However, the donor signs should complement and relate to the UMB Sign Program standards. Donor signs will be reviewed by the SCE Committee and forwarded to the University’s Executive Leadership Group for approval.
