Design Rationale

The Shield is the official seal of the University. It is taken from the heraldic coat-of-arms of the family of William Murray, Earl of Mansfield and Lord Chief Justice of Great Britain in 1756. William Murray is an ancestor of the Murray family from whom the city and the University take their names. The shield is blue with a double gold border, and the three stars represent hope, endeavor, and achievement.
