New Logo


The Board commissioned an ad hoc committee to work with a design agency to consider how to best represent the SACUBO brand. With consideration given to the association's history and new strategic plan, the committee sought a simple, clean, professional, modern, and unique look. In the new logo, the white abstract “S” represents the southern region. The abstract stairs reflect moving forward and rising up and the programs and tools SACUBO offers individuals and their organizations to advance to the next level. The red and gray represent the brick and mortar of SACUBO’s member institutions.
