Email, one of the most-used methods of communication, presents an opportunity to promote The University of Akron.

In our email signatures, the consistent and professional use of our name, title and contact information contributes to our brand’s strength and supports our roles as ambassadors for the university. Therefore, we recommend that you use the format below for your email signature.
