Trademark Licensing

Iowa State University was one of the first universities in the nation to establish a trademark licensing program in 1984.  The program promotes and protects the use of the University’s name and logos. We have approximately 650 licensed vendors that can produce our marks on almost any product.  Procurement Services can help with the approval process to produce our marks.
