Email Signature Standards

The presentation of your email signature is important. Using consistent email signatures for @boisestate.edu email accounts is an opportunity to create brand alignment while sharing your contact information in a format that is accessible to assisted-technology users.

In addition, consistent and clear email signatures present a professional appearance for conducting business through email that quickly identifies the sender as a Boise State employee.

University employees who would like to include their personal pronouns and/or use an honorific may do so on any one of the three options below. Sharing personal pronouns and asking others what pronouns and name they prefer to go by are all ways of showing respect. Learn more about gender pronouns at mypronouns.org.
