Graphic Identity (e.g., logos, etc.) – We uphold the College’s graphic and visual identity through consistent application of standards for the use of the Hendrix logos and imagery, as well consistency in content, design, and photography. For more information, visit the online Hendrix Brand Guide. 

H-Alert – Communications and Public Safety co-administer the College’s official emergency notification system that notifies users via text and email message of an emergency or potential emergency.
