Policy Update: Guidelines for Announcements

One person's must-do event is another person's junk mail. In order to strike a good balance between informing the campus and avoiding spamming everyone, our Guidelines for Announcements provide tips and strategies for getting your message out and making appropriate use of email mailing lists.

A special item to note is the very limited use of mailing lists for fundraising. Please do not use university email lists for making personal announcements or offering personal items for sale. Check the guidelines for details.
