Summary

  • End all official University letters with the approved signature format.
  • Do not list personal social media accounts in University signatures.
 

Letterhead

If the University letterhead you are using has the same address and phone number where you can be reached, use this signature format to end your letters:

Your Name
Your Title, College/Department/School/Office Name
e-mailname@ohio.edu

Departmental or Unit Tagline (e.g., The best student-centered learning experience in America, You make the difference, Great stories start here, Create for Good—check with your campus communicator.)

 

If your office and telephone number are different from what is printed on the letterhead, use this signature format:

Your Name
Your Title, College/Department/School/Office Name
Building Name w/Room number after
1 Ohio University
Athens OH 45701-2979

T: 740.000.0000
F: 740.000.0000
e-mailname@ohio.edu

Departmental or Unit Tagline

 

If you wish to include your college/department/school/office social media address, list it on its own line below your e-mail address, omitting the http:// part of the URL:

www.twitter.com/yourschool
www.facebook.com/yourprogram
 

NEVER list personal social media accounts.
