Submit emails for campus-wide distribution

How to send:

Campus-wide emails can be sent to the following:

The process:

UTCINFO and NEWS are moderated distribution lists, meaning your message is sent to a moderation queue and approved by a staff member before it is sent to the larger campus community.

When you prepare a message for approval, write it as if you were sending it to the entire campus community. Once approved, the email will be transmitted just as you sent it. Proofread your text. We cannot make edits to these emails.

Graphics or images—Don’t use them:

Graphics, including logos, must not be included in your submission. Do not send email with logos, images or photos within the message or included as an attachment. We want your message to be delivered as quickly and easily as possible, and graphics and images can cause issues with formatting, accessibility and delivery.

If graphics are used, we will send those submissions back to you along with a note. Often, for example, a logo submitted is not approved for official use.

Use of attachments:

Again, attachments can not be sent in messages to campus email listservs. This includes images, pdf documents and Word documents.

If your message includes an attachment, it will be returned to you with a request that you resend it without an attachment.
