Marketing Slide Policy

Effective immediately, departments will have the creative freedom to design their own TV screens and myLU slides. With that, Marketing will no longer offer TV screens or myLU slides as a design service. 

TV screens and myLU slides should be designed by departments and approved by your supervisor before publishing. Art does not need to be submitted to a Marketing team for approval prior to publishing. TV screen announcements should be sent to announcements@liberty.edu for publishing. myLU slides can be posted by your department through Liberty.edu/AnnouncementsAdmin. If you need permissions to this tool, please submit a Permissions Request ticket in the ServiceNow portal.

Departments are welcome to create their own art using the design program of their choice. For those who would like a more straightforward option, we have created templates that can be easily edited using Adobe Acrobat (see templates below).

Below is a list of guidelines to help ensure all submitted art meets university standards.

Design Standards for Submission

  • Run spell check
  • Dates (confirm that days match the actual calendar date)
  • Times (correct format, e.g. 10 a.m.)
  • We suggest no phone numbers (because of space)
  • We suggest no wordmarks because slides are internal
  • Make sure the event location is correct and is also named correctly (e.g., Green Hall not North Campus)

Follow AP and LU style guides (see Style Guide Quick Tips)
