Trademark Licensing



Howard University's Trademark Licensing Program works to promote, enhance and elevate the image of Howard University by authorizing the use of the University's name and logos on high quality and tasteful merchandise.  Howard University requires that all individuals, organizations, departments and companies, both internal and external, obtain prior approval before using any Howard Indicia. This includes all names or logos that are registered trademarks of the university, as well as any use of University color schemes in combination with facts or wording that implies an association with the University.

This formal licensing program is administered by the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises in partnership with the IMG College Licensing (formerly Collegiate Licensing Company, CLC). IMG College Licensing is the nation's leading collegiate licensing and marketing representative.  Formed in 1981, IMG College Licensing assists collegiate licensors in protecting and controlling the use of their logos through trademark licensing.  Their Consortium consists of more than 200 universities, bowl games, conferences, the NCAA and the Heisman Trophy. Based in Atlanta, IMG College Licensing provides its member institutions the expertise, resources and experience necessary to maximize licensing revenue potential through the power of consolidation.
