Cornell Hall Digital Display Submission

Design and Submission Guidelines for the Atrium Daktronics Screen and Hallway Digital Displays in Cornell Hall

The digital displays throughout Cornell Hall are a great place for faculty, staff and student organizations of the Trulaske College of Business to share announcements for the college’s upcoming events and general news. Please read the guidelines below for creating and submitting your slides to the Trulaske College of Business before making your submission.


  • We will only post slides for events and announcements related to faculty, staff and students (i.e. organizations) of the Trulaske College of Business or an event hosted in Cornell Hall.
  • We ask that your requested publication date be AT LEAST one week before your event takes place. This allows the college time to approve and publish your slide as well as give plenty of time for your slide to run on the screen.
  • NOTE: If you intend for your slide to be on BOTH the Atrium Screen and the Hallway Digital Display Screens, please submit a PowerPoint file and check the "Both" tab on the submission form. We will be able to edit and adjust the PowerPoint slide size to ensure it fits on both screen sizes.
  • There are specific size and aspect-ratios for the display screens in Cornell Hall.
    • Atrium Screen: Please use our pre-sized PowerPoint file to assist in creating your slide. (Click to download.) Save files as "atrium_screen_[eventname][year]", e.g. "atrium_screen_bweekschedule2018"
      • If you are using your own PowerPoint slide for the Atrium Screen, your slide size should be 5in x 2.67in. 
      • Please submit a PowerPoint file so we have the ability to make minor edits to your slide if needed.
    • Hallway Digital Display Screens: These files should be submitted as a JPG or PNG file with a size of 1920x1080 pixels. Save files as "digital_display_[eventname][year]", e.g. "digital_display_bweekschedule2018"


  • Mizzou and the Trulaske College of Business maintain a consistent identity standard, including logos, fonts and colors. Find more information on these standards at We may initially reject a slide if incorrect logos are used and cannot be easily removed or replaced.
    • The college no longer uses the “MIZ BIZ” brand mark. Please refrain from using this mark on your designs.
    • While the university has specific official fonts, we only ask that fonts be legible and easy-to-read on the screen. Avoid specialized fonts that may not be widely available on most computers.
  • Ensure that foreground and background colors used meet minimum web accessibility contrast standards. Click here to check your colors.
  • For slides with events, be sure to include the time, date and location on your slide. Also be sure to identify the sponsoring/hosting organization.
  • Avoid putting too much information on the screen. The slide will only be up for a short time before the next slide advances. If additional information is required, consider making the information available to access online and including the URL.
  • Avoid using the acronym "TCoB." Use "Trulaske College of Business" on the first reference and "Trulaske" on any subsequent references.
  • Because of the size and location of the Atrium Screen, QR codes should not be part of your submitted slide. QR codes may be used on the smaller digital displays. If you are using a QR code and wish to have your slides placed on both sizes of screen, please provide a version sized for the Atrium Screen without a code and a version sized for the other displays that includes your code.
  • If including a web address on your slide, consider using a URL shortener such as bitly to increase legibility.


  • Once you are ready to submit, save your slide, and upload via our online submission form below. Atrium Screen slides can be submitted as a PowerPoint file (.ppt or .pptx). Hallway digital display screen slides should be submitted as a JPG/PNG file.
  • Slides intended for BOTH screens need to be submitted as a PowerPoint file (.ppt or .pptx).
  • Slides must be approved before they are published.*

Additional Resources

If you are a faculty or staff member and need to submit a slide for an upcoming event, please download the PowerPoint templates below and fill in the necessary pieces of information for your event.
