E-Newsletter Design

The e-newsletter design app Emma is supported by Amherst College IT and is available to all departments. Check with your department to see if you have templates already in place. If your department isn’t already using Emma, email to request an Emma account. Once the account is created, Communications can set up a template for you. (Departments that use Slate will have a designated Slate point-person.)
