This editorial style manual was created by staff in Wheaton’s Marketing and Communications office to help writers and editors across campus maintain consistency in print and electronic publications. Based on the Associated Press Stylebook, The Chicago Manual of Style and our own house practices, this manual addresses usage and style topics such as capitalization, abbreviations, punctuation, figures (numbers), titles and other issues.

We invite all members of the Wheaton community to use this resource when deciding questions of grammar, punctuation and style in their nonacademic writing. For help with editorial issues not addressed here, refer to the above-mentioned references, or feel free to contact the Office of Marketing and Communications.
