DFA Employee Portal Instructions

DFA brand guidelines and template library are located on SharePoint which requires approval and access with UCI credentials.

DFA has its own brand that is consistent with our mission, vision, and values. A unified divisional brand helps define and reinforce who we are: planning partners, problem solvers, and solution providers.

DFA is part of UCI, and thus carries the personality of the UCI brand. Likewise, DFA is comprised of different departments who carry the personality of DFA and UCI.

The DFA Employee Portal is a SharePoint site (requires approval and access with UCI credentials) that contains:

  • DFA Brand Workbook & Quick Reference Guide
  • DFA template library (e.g., agenda, email, letterhead, PowerPoint, etc.)
  • Divisional wordmarks
  • DFA brand guidelines, resources, FAQs, and much more!

Email Signatures

Email signatures are a part of the brand identity of DFA staff members and it is important that they follow our branding guidelines.

How to use the email signature:

  • Use acceptable fonts for your email signature—Arial, Calibri, Times, Verdana.
  • Make sure your email signature includes the division name (Division of Finance and Administration) and the tagline With U • For U, which reflect our unity as a division and our commitment to supporting UCI.
  • Optional: You can choose to include the official UCI logo in your email signature, as illustrated below.
    • Please note, using images in email signatures can create receiving issues (e.g., not all email services support images, creates an unnecessary attachment, etc.).
    • By downloading the logo, you agree to use it only for your email signature.
  • Click here for instructions on how to add the logo and tagline to your Outlook email. For best results, copy and paste information in Outlook and update applicable fields, including ZotCode.
