Capitalize on first and formal references.

On first reference in written publications for an external audience, preface the name of the institute or center with “the University of Georgia” unless the full university name has been used earlier.

Be wary of acronyms, initialisms or abbreviations that are regularly used within a given unit but are unfamiliar to wider audiences.

On Second Reference

The name of the institute alone is acceptable but do not place the name before UGA in a sentence.
