Campus Wide Emails

NOTE:  the following process is for (1) faculty and staff who wish to send a mass e-mail to students and (2) students who wish to send a mass e-mail to faculty, staff and/or students.  Faculty and staff may send mass e-mail to all other faculty and staff using the ALL-L listserve without submitting a request as outlined in the following procedure.

Mass E-mail Process
Twice per week during peak periods mass e-mail requests received during a given period of time will be combined into one digest e-mail.  Peak periods will be approximately late August to early December and mid-January to early May.  One digest per week will be distributed during non-peak periods.

  • Messages received between 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday and 7:00 p.m. on Sunday will go into the first digest of the week, which will be distributed on Monday morning. 
  • Messages received between 7:00 p.m. on Sunday and 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday  will go into the second digest of the week, which will be distributed on Thursday morning.

A total of four digests will be distributed each week during peak periods:  two to students (Monday and Thursday); and two to faculty and staff (Monday and Thursday).  Messages that are for both audiences will go into a student digest and a faculty and staff digest.

Information on Clarion University events will not be included in eDigest.  The events will be added to the website calendar.  Each edition of eDigest will link to the website calendar for information on "Upcoming Events."

Who May Submit a Request?
Recognized student and university organizations as well as representatives of university programs and departments may submit a mass e-mail request by completing an online form.  On the form, you may note if the message if for a specific subset of an audience (for example, "All Education Majors").  This specific information will be included with the blurb in eDigest.  Request for custom messages to a subset of the student population will be handled on an exception-basis and require seven (7) business days advance notice.

On the request form, you may note the particular audience within the requested title/subject line.  Requests for custom messages to a subset of the student population will be handled on an exception basis and require seven business days advance notice through the e-mail request form.

Requests that violate the university's Acceptable Use of Technology Resources Policy will not be distributed.
