All Staff, Faculty, and Student Email Lists

This notification is to inform you about the change to email addresses of the three email distribution lists used to send messages to all students, all faculty and all staff. This change allows for faster message deliveries, provides better message moderation capabilities, and enables many Office 365 features including improved security controls. The new lists are already active and available for you to use and we encourage you to transition to the new email addresses right away. Beginning January 3rd 2019, messages to the old "Lyris" listserve email addresses will bounce back to the sender.

For additional information regarding this change, please feel free to contact the OIT help desk if you have any questions by sending an email to

UPDATE: Beginning Wednesday 01/23/2019, there will be two faculty email distribution lists available to you. One, consisting of ALL faculty including Core, Adjunct and Emeritus, and another with only the Core faculty.

Can the same type of content be sent?

Your outlook client memorizes all the email addresses that you send messages to. Please delete the old email list from the memorized list by clicking Delete or X icon.
