Official University Mass-Mail lists

A number of University electronic mailing lists exist for official University communications. Mass electronic mailings to any one of these lists is permitted only by permission of the appropriate University office. In general, the same authority which approves large paper mailings approves the use of large e-mail lists to the same audiences.
