The following guidelines are intended to help Missouri Western faculty and staff prepare copy (text) for University publications and resolve basic questions about style. They are not inflexible rules, but rather an aid to maintain professionalism and consistency in University materials. Missouri Western has adopted the Associated Press (AP) Stylebook as the primary reference for all communications. If you have any questions, call Marketing & Communications at (816) 271-4148.

The most important thing to remember when you are writing copy for a publication is that the style should remain consistent throughout the entire piece. This guide is to help the entire University be as consistent as possible in all publications.
