This presentation template adheres to the University Style Guidelines as specified on https://marketing.uic.edu/marketing-toolbox/university-style-guide/ .
Font is the only stylistic element that could not be specified to strictly adhere to these guidelines. Implementing fonts is nontrivial in LaTeX. One could utilize an alternate compiler to implement *.ttf fonts, but I could not figure out how to do this without conflicts/errors.
This template can easily be adapted to other departments using the UIC logos available on the marketing.uic.edu website.
This Blackboard beamer theme and template was created by Kazuki Maeda <firstname.lastname@example.org> for Japanese presentations, but can be used for English (or other European languages) presentations as well. It has been modified to work with XeLaTeX.
p/s: The blackboard background was drawn with TikZ; the code is also included in the template.
