Email is an efficient and cost-effective means to reach internal audiences. However, the overuse of mass email messaging dilutes the impact of these messages and negatively affects the university’s ability to deliver messages of critical importance. We strive to minimize unsolicited, mass-delivered messaging.
There are several ways to communicate information and publicize an event that may be more effective than a mass email.
Mass emails are defined as being sent to a large group (over 1,000 recipients), such as all faculty, students, staff, or administrators who have a university email account.
The university will send mass emails to convey emergency information, critical alerts, and important information of campuswide interest as defined by the owners of mass email lists.
University Communications/List owners/Office of Information Technology reserve the right to determine the appropriate distribution of mass emails. Please note the following requirements when considering mass email for internal and external audiences.
Please allow at least two weeks notice for mass email requests.
If you believe that your message meets the mass email requirements, please contact the eComm team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like help sending a message at the school/college level, please see campus communicators directory.
