Be a UT Health Science Center Ambassador!


Embrace Our New Mission, Vision, and Values: Be a UT Health Science Center Ambassador!

As you know, the UT Board of Trustees approved a new strategic plan for the UT Health Science Center in June. This plan includes:

  • Updated mission:
    Transforming lives through collaborative and inclusive education, research/scholarship, clinical care, and public service.
  • New vision:
    Healthy Tennesseans. Thriving Communities.
  • Modified set of the UT System’s values to be better suited for our academic health science center:

We are looking to all of our outstanding faculty and staff to be ambassadors of this great institution and brand. Please help amplify our UT Health Science Center brand to people across the state, region, and nation. It takes a team to tell our story and be recognized for the amazing work that we know takes place everywhere we are – from our campuses to the community to our clinical settings. We encourage you to fully embrace our new mission, vision, and values, utilize the resources below, and be a UT Health Science Center brand ambassador!

  1. Updated Email Signature Generator

The UT Health Science Center’s official Email Signature Generator has been updated to include the new vision at the bottom.

The official email signature is required for all UT Health Science Center staff, faculty, residents, and students who are issued a UTHSC email address to use in all internal and external email communication – see policy CM0002-H Email Signatures and Photos. The email signature provides recipients with a consistently branded awareness of UTHSC, while also reflecting the professionalism of all who work and study at our institution.

Please take a moment to visit the generator and update your email signature:

  1. Please fill out all fields correctly on the Email Signature Generator: https://uthsc.edu/brand/email/index.php
  2. If your office building and address are the same, please do not repeat them
  3. Hit “submit” at the bottom when the form is complete
  4. Two signatures will be generated – one with, and one without, the UTHSC ShortSig logo; the logo version is preferred, but not required
  5. Copy your preferred signature (including the logo, if that’s your preferred option) and paste it into your email client (Outlook, Apple Mail, etc. – and don’t forget your cell phone’s email client, if you send UTHSC email via your cell phone)

Please note:

  • Do not alter the spacing, font, logo, color, or any other part of the email signature
  • Do not use any other email signatures, photos, emojis, symbols, or text as part of your email signature – only email signatures created from the Email Signature Generator are permitted
  • All phone numbers (telephone, cell, fax, lab, etc.) must have periods in them, not dashes or parentheses
  • The only allowed edit to the email signature generated is to add an additional phone, cell, fax, or lab number – To make this edit, please copy the telephone line of text, paste a copy on the next line, highlight the “t:” and change to “f:” for fax numbers, “c:” for cell numbers, “t:” for additional telephone numbers, or “l:” for lab numbers

If you have any problems with the Email Signature Generator, please email communications@uthsc.edu
