Fonts/typefaces

The university has two official typefaces that can be downloaded for campus use: Agenda (sans-serif) and Utopia (serif). Instructions for accessing them, as well as secondary typefaces and substitutes for applications that do not have them, are below.

University typefaces must be used on apparel and merchandise ordered by academic departments and offices.

For further assistance with typefaces, please contact the Marketing Office.


Primary typefaces

Agenda

Agenda is a sans-serif typeface, meaning it has a simpler design without extending flourishes at the end of each letter's strokes.
  • Sans-serif typeface is ideal for subheads, body copy and captions.
  • Agenda may be downloaded from the Tech Help tab in myRedDragon.

Utopia

Utopia is a serif typeface, meaning it has small, decorative features called "serifs" at the end of each letter's strokes.
  • Serif typeface is ideal for headlines, subheads or body copy.
  • To request Utopia, please contact the Marketing Office at 607-753-2519 or marketing@cortland.edu.

  • Abolition is only for limited use by the Marketing Office.
