  •  UND Fighting Zygotes! (0+ / 0-)
    What will be the University’s nickname and logo after Fighting Sioux is retired?

    The University’s athletic teams will be called UND or “North Dakota,” and will use the current interlocking ND logo, the North Dakota logo, or the UND “flame” logo until a new nickname and logo are chosen by the University.

    What are some of the issues that will be part of choosing a new nickname and logo?

    Most importantly, any new nickname and logo should be ones that the entire University of North Dakota community can rally around and ones that let fans have fun in cheering our student athletes. The State Board of Higher Education’s May 2009 resolution provides that “[i]n the event a new nickname and logo are adopted by UND, they shall not violate the NCAA policy regarding Native American nicknames, mascots and imagery.” Issues related to team uniforms, trademark and copyright, marketing and merchandising, and University identity all will be part of the careful, deliberate, and public process of choosing a new nickname and logo.

    How can I suggest my idea for a new nickname and logo?

    When the process for choosing a new nickname and logo is implemented it will be announced to UND students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends.
