Brand Standards for Ohio University

Consistent formatting of e-mail signatures presents opportunities to strengthen the OHIO brand and reinforce our sense of community and purpose on a daily—or even hourly—basis. 

By using a common format for content in the signature space at the bottom of e-mail messages, all members of our University community can participate in helping to build the OHIO brand with every e-mail they send. Such measures advance a shared sense of our community's mission among those within the University and strengthen OHIO's brand to external audiences.  

Approved format options for brand signatures at the bottom of e-mails sent from ohio.edu accounts appear below. If your phone number has an extension, you can use an 'x' to signify the extension number, as in 740.000.0000 x000.

NOTE: As an additional way for employees to demonstrate their pride in the University and, conversely, OHIO's pride in the years of valuable service our employees have provided the institution, faculty and staff are invited to include a couple of optional additional items in their e-mail signatures, at their discretion.

On the same line as their name (and degree, if they choose to include it), faculty and staff also may wish to add:

1) their year of graduation from Ohio University if they are OHIO graduates, and/or

2) their years of service as an employee of the University (abbreviated as Y.S. [numeral]).

EXAMPLE:
Henry Jones Jr. earned a B.A. at Ohio University in 2000 and has been an employee for eight years:

Henry Jones Jr., B.A. '00, Y.S. 8
