2021 Communication Assets Update

Dear Faculty and Staff:

I hope your 2021 Spring semester has gotten off to a great start! Here are a few updates that you should know about:

New powerpoint templates

New Brand Templates
Central marketing and communications (MARCOM) has completed a “brand refresh” and has made new powerpoint templates available. We have adapted the new templates for the College of Education, which are attached. For University of Missouri powerpoint templates, click here. There are also research poster templates and graphic elements available here.

Email signature generator example

Email signature generator
In addition, MARCOM also completed work on a new email signature generator. You can see my example in my signature below. Much like the business card and stationary policy, this allows for a consistent look across campus. At this time, the generator only provides the unit signature at the school or college level. Contact us for Outreach unit signature help. Personally, I have found the social media buttons awkward and removed them from my signature.

Folders Available, University of Missouri folder image with Columns

Strat Comm has folders available for purchase in bulk. They are 45 cents each and have a new design featuring the columns. We still have a limited number of the classic black folders as well. Order folders through our request form by providing the quantity needed, the intended use, and your MoCode. We will take care of the rest!

Student in classroom with mask and laptop

Strat comm is conducting an audit of our photography on the website, and may be reaching out to you to take an updated headshot. You can always request a new (socially distanced) headshot by using our project request form. If any instructors would allow us to photograph their socially distanced classrooms, we are still looking for photos of students and instructors in masks, so please contact us if you’re willing to allow us into your in-person classroom.

Missouri Online swag tumbler and usb drive

As you may know, Mizzou Online has recently changed their name to Missouri Online in an effort to better represent all four UM System campuses. As a result, we have a limited number of Mizzou Online items that can be used as giveaways. If you’re interested, please fill out our request form to indicate what you would use the items for and we can discuss your options.
