The Office of Licensing Programs partners with The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) to administer the University's licensing program. The nation's leading collegiate licensing and marketing representative, CLC assists collegiate licensors in protecting and controlling the use of their logos through trademark licensing. CLC processes licensing applications, collects royalties, enforces trademarks, and pursues new marketing opportunities on behalf of the University.
