7.1 Student Listservs

Prelude

The SDC maintains moderated listservs as follows:

These lists are used to distribute important information regarding events, announcements, deadlines, etc. Submissions may be sent by students, faculty, and staff directly to the list (as noted above) and a designated moderator will approve, deny, or discard the request according to the guidelines below.

Guidelines

  • Use a Meaningful Subject Line. When sending messages to a mailing list, please make sure they have a clear and descriptive entry on the “Subject:” line.
  • Provide Context. Every posting should begin with a clear introduction to the topic, or offer some kind of reference to the topic or a previous posting.
  • Contact Information. Provide the name, title, and contact info for the person sending the message and/or where questions should be directed.
  • Message should be carefully proofed by the sender to ensure accuracy with regards to spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
  • Members whose messages do not meet minimum expectations will be notified with a chance to revise the submission. Posts may be excluded permanently from future participation if deemed necessary.
  • Personal Mail. Send personal messages directly to individuals, not by way of the list.
  • Quality of Communication. As a moderated list, all posts will be reviewed for appropriateness before distribution.

Maintenance

The e-mail list of students is updated each semester by the academic program manager or his/her designee. Students may unsubscribe themselves directly via the “unsubscribe” link provided in the e-mail should they no longer wish to receive announcements. Students are not encouraged to unsubscribe unless they have graduated or discontinued enrollment in a program at the school.
