Test Your IPFW Editorial Style

  • For offices, schools, and departments, a general rule governing capitalization is that official names are capitalized (Office of the Bursar); unofficial, informal, shortened, or generic names are not (bursar's office, the bursar).
  • In general, avoid unnecessary capitalization; it reduces the readability of the publication.
