The mission of Grand Canyon University's Licensing program is to protect and promote the Grand Canyon University brand and to ensure the public can properly identify and associate the University's name and logos with officially licensed products bearing the University's marks.
All Grand Canyon University trademarks are the property of Grand Canyon University.
Grand Canyon University requires that all individuals, organizations, departments and companies, both internal and external, obtain prior approval before producing any product(s) that will display Grand Canyon University trademarks regardless of the method of distribution.
This site is designed for those who wish to license a product and learn more about the use of Grand Canyon University trademarks and the licensing process. Grand Canyon University's formal licensing program is administered through a partnership with the Strategic Marketing Affiliates (SMA).
Strategic Marketing Affiliates manages the intellectual property rights of universities, colleges and conferences to maximize market impact with marks and logos. SMA provides clients with the knowledge, experience and insight necessary to have a successful licensing program.
Founded in 1997, Strategic Marketing Affiliates has quickly grown to become a leader in the arena of collegiate licensing. The Indianapolis-based SMA team combines extensive licensing and marketing experience with a forward thinking attitude in keeping its approach fresh, energetic, and, above all else, effective.
