We use email campaigns to promote University events and initiatives, distribute newsletters and keep our audiences informed.

When planning an email campaign, use these templates to make sure your communications are on-brand, visually appealing and mobile responsive.

You can use a branded template or request a custom email design from Creative Services.

Branded templates

Create your email using a pre-designed template. Branded templates are compatible with the following platforms:

  • Microsoft Outlook
  • MailChimp
  • GroupMail (and other third-party email service providers) 

When using a branded template, review best practices for email.

Custom emails

If the branded templates do not meet your needs, Creative Services may be able to develop a custom design for you.
