Referencing a Unit on Letterhead Letterhead is a unique communication tool. It is designed to be used when an official communication on behalf of the university is required. Because of this, all letterhead templates are "branded up" to their parent unit. This gives more strength to the message being sent and helps to gives notoriety to each of the programs that serve the parent unit. For academic units, the letterhead will feature references to the university, college, and department. It will not feature a reference to the program so that the program can lean on the brand power of the parent units. For non-academic units, letterhead will simply feature a reference to the parent unit and not the secondary unit for the same reason. This includes units like Facilities & Services, Public Affairs, etc.
