Fletcher-specific style guidelines are included in the A-Z guide below.

OFFICE – The names of university offices are uppercase when the full, formal name is used. A shortened form (“Office of” is dropped) used on second reference is also uppercase: Office of Career Services (OCS), Career Services. A reversed version of the full, formal name is lowercase: The career services office has received a record number of applicants.
