Edge-specific style

  • The word "Edge" should be capitalized when referring to "the UVic Edge" or "the Edge," but not when using phrases such as "UVic gives you an edge."
  • "Dynamic learning," "vital impact" and "extraordinary academic environment" should be in sentence case.
  • When space is limited, such as in a headline, "extraordinary academic environment" can be shortened to "extraordinary environment," provided the supporting copy still speaks to the academic aspects of our environment and not just the physical.
