ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including Healthcare)

SUBJECT:  Electronic Notices and Flyers

This notice provides information about procedures for subscribing to UCSD listserve options that provide official information about campus issues or announce campus activities. Currently, there are three listserve mechanisms that enable individuals to keep up-to-date on important information and events in the UCSD community -- UCSD-Notices, UCSD-Flyers, and Academic-Flyers.

NOTICES communicate information related to the business activities of the University. Notices may be addressed to the entire campus or to select segments of the campus population (e.g., faculty and staff, academic administrators, key staff, etc.). All notices require prior approval by a Vice Chancellor or HIS/HER DESIGNEE. Department chairs and key administrative support contacts are encouraged to subscribe to this list.

FLYERS are announcements regarding campus events, activities, and information of a general nature, e.g., music presentations, theater programs, announcements of lectures, blood drives, or campus relocations. To issue a flyer, the proposed text should be authorized by the chief administrator of any department, office, or program and adminrec@ucsd.edu.

ACADEMIC-FLYERS provide material of particular interest to the academic community, such as colloquia, symposia, conferences, and lectures. This is a listserve consisting of academics and others who may wish to receive those announcements. To issue an academic-flyer the proposed text should be authorized by the chief administrator of the academic department or program and adminrec@ucsd.edu.

To subscribe to UCSD-Notices, UCSD-Flyers, or Academic-Flyers listserves, please SEND AN EMAIL TO listserv@ucsd.edu, with no subject, and in the first text line state the name of the listserve:
