While e-mail has clearly become one of the most-used methods of communication, it also presents a great opportunity for us to reinforce the brand of The University of Akron.

In our e-mail signatures, a consistent and professional use of language referencing our name, title and contact information augments our brand’s strength and maximizes each of our positions as ambassadors for the University. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you use the format shown here for your e-mail signature.

It is understood that an affiliation or association with various professional organizations and/or institutions often augments one’s value as an employee of the University. However, it is best not to add the related contact information about these associations to our e-mail signature, particularly if this information might direct someone to another institution’s website. This practice sends a confusing message to the recipient about our actual relationship with the University, and it prevents The University of Akron from standing out on its own as a unique and high-quality institution.
