The University of Massachusetts Amherst

Email Signature

When communicating on behalf of the university, it is important to present yourself in a professional manner that is consistent with the university's brand and role as a state institution. Branded email signatures are available for use by university employees. Use the tool below to generate an approved email signature for use in Microsoft Outlook’s desktop client and Office 365. Use a text-only email signature for mobile devices. Other than the university’s logo, do not use images or logos within the email signature. Do not add personal messages, quotes, slogans or taglines to your professional email signature. While these may reflect your personal views, they may not reflect the official position of the university and may be misinterpreted by recipients as being "official" university communication.

Wordmark Styles
Our wordmarks are the primary visual representations of our brand. They act as our signature and are the common thread among all forms of communication. This is why it is essential that we treat them consistently across all media. The guideline for any version of the UMass Amherst wordmark is very simple: only use approved wordmarks and do not change them in any way.
