How can I customize this material?

Anyone utilizing these slide deck must acknowledge any slides or content that have been added as it may represent the viewpoint of the presenter and not the viewpoint of ACLM. It is required that additional non-ACLM slides be labeled as such. Any faculty who has been granted access to customizable PowerPoints can utilize individual slides and incorporate them into existing lectures or new lectures as long as they maintain the integrity of the slide and logo exactly as originally created.
