The drafting of the Mission of Unoeste was the result of extensive internal discussion and reflects the role of the university as an institution of higher education, jeopardizing the academic community in the establishment and implementation of goals and actions of transformations and changes in quality level.
APEC - Association Prudentina of Education and Culture, founded in 1972 and maintains the University of Oeste Paulista, maintains its original logo is still used for administrative purposes only. His symbolic representation graphically refers to the image of the owl, a bird symbol of wisdom.
The recognition of the University of Oeste Paulista, effected by the MEC in 1987, required the creation of new graphic identity. Since then, this representation has undergone some changes. See the logos used by Unoeste since its creation, as well as commemorative logos on the occasion of the 30 and 35 years later.
In 2008, through its Department of Communication, Unoeste redefined some graphics for the formation of its new Identity Plate.
In her source was added tone gradient, aiming to revitalize and add contemporary features to the brand. To fully represent the University's commitment to the tripod Education and Research, has changed its logo in the letter of the word U Unoeste. That letter went on to present three stripes that symbolize the three pillars that guide the main lines of the University of Oeste Paulista, in short, the promotion of Education, Research and Extension in various areas of human knowledge.
On some occasions, the University only uses the letter U separate logo, aiming to raise awareness and strengthen this concept to his audience.
With this proposal, the Unoeste, through its name and graphic representation communicates the intent of their "product": higher quality, always linked to research and extension in different fields of scientific, humanistic and technological.
