The University Communications at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has created a series of manuals and guides.  They are there in order to support and promote internal and external communication along various channels, so that the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is painted in the best light.

The graphic designers who work as part of the University Communications team are responsible for the corporate design of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. The corporate design is the foundation of visual communication with the outside world as well as within the university. A uniform visual appearance strengthens employee’s identification with the university and heightens the profile of the university in the public eye. Our Style Guide documents numerous design elements and shows you how you can implement the corporate design of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.

Are you planning to use social media as an information and communication channel? Then please read the Social Media Guidelines for the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. 
There you will find a compilation of all of the most important conduct rules and recommendations for how to best participate in social  networks. 

There are multiple ways (all equally correct) of expressing various terms and ideas. Rules and standards differ, change and evolve across country lines and decades.

In order to create a consistent appearance of text, we have created diverse reference tools to support the standardisation of how English terms appear in Bauhaus-Universität Weimar publications with regard to abbreviation, capitalization, spelling and punctuation. These resources are not to be used as a teaching devices.  They are simply here to support a consistent expression of terms in all media that represents the university either in an internal or external capacity, i.e. university website, online and print publications

The Bauhaus-Universität Weimar‘s Guide to English Text Composition can be used in combination with »DE.ENG« in order to assist users in creating a unified English-language style across all communications. Both tools were created in response to the university’s call for increased internationalisation.
