Your New Email Signature

Posted Wednesday, December 8, 2021

In October 2020, the campus announced the start of the commemoration of the founding of our campus with a special UWI St. Augustine 60th Anniversary logo that represented the campus and its legacy. As part of this commemoration, an official UWI 60th Anniversary graphic was created and shared for use as part of your email signature.  

Now that the 60th year has come to a close, we ask that you remove the UWI 60th Anniversary graphic from your email signature and refrain from using it on any channels or medium. The use of the anniversary hashtag #UWISTA60 should also be discontinued. 

In light of The UWI’s outstanding performance in the recently released Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2022, we are pleased to share with you a new graphic that can be used in your email signature. Click here to download the graphic.

Images, like the new THE graphic, can be copied and pasted into the email signature box. If the image appears too large after is has been pasted:

  • simply click on the image and its border will be highlighted 
  • place your mouse on any of the dots that appear on the corners of the border and drag to make the image smaller
  • you can average the size of the graphic based on the width of the text that will appear above it  

To hyperlink the social media icons that are shown on the sample signature that was shared above:

  • click on the image in your signature
  • when the image is highlighted, click the ‘Links’ button
  • a window will pop-up which will allow you to insert a website link. For example, the Facebook icon should be hyperlinked to the Campus’ Facebook page, the Instagram icon should be hyperlinked to the Campus’ Instagram page and so on.

Please be reminded of Page 44 of the University’s Brand Identity Guidelinesread here, which discourages the use of quotes or epigraphs in order to avoid the potential confusion of external audiences assuming a particular statement represents the University’s official slogan, ideology, or brand promise. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
