University Seal

The official seal of the University should be used in conjunction with historic or formal academic events, and on official University documents, such as diplomas, transcripts, official records, programs for formal academic events or formal invitations, and legally binding documents.

The official University seal is not a logo and should never be used as one. It should never be used in place of the official logo of Campbellsville University.

If you wish to use the seal as a graphic element, contact the Office of University Communications at (270) 789-5213 and materials will be made available.

The seal is Campbellsville University’s historical emblem. Designed by alumnus Scotty Lane Coconaugher Clenney, ’63, it features a campus scene in a triangle surrounded by a proclamation of the universal attributes of fellowship, leadership and scholarship, the words “Campbellsville University” and the date and place of the University’s founding, 1906, Campbellsville, Kentucky. The official seal is a revered symbol of Campbellsville University, emblematic of its historic roots and widely recognized through long use.
