Guidelines for Emailing Students
In an effort to reserve student email for critical information, new communication guidelines have been established that will be included in both the faculty and staff handbooks.
- Only critical, need to know information is to be emailed to students.
- The following departments will have the ability to send emails to all students.
Departments and “power users” are as follows:
|Academic Affairs||Marline Faherty|
|Academic Planning||Cindy Fiedler|
|Dean of Students||Vicki Harrold|
|Financial Aid||Becky Ahrens|
|Human Resources||Crystal Ponder|
|Information Systems||Val Serafimov|
|The President's Office||Donna Hanley|
|Technology Services||Albert Rauch|
|Administrative Services||Christy Garrison|
|Alumni & Development||Teresa Skidmore|
|Campus Recreation||Ben Fisher|
|Career Planning||Emily Buckmaster|
|Student Activities||Hope Russell|
In the event that you have mission-critical information to disseminate to all students, please contact one of the aforementioned departments and request their assistance in disseminating your information.
- If you have information that will need to be sent out more than once a month, please contact a Student Communications Committee member to be considered for access to the student email lists.
Student Communications Committee Members
- Andrea Battaglia
- Marline Faherty
- Jennifer Stewart
- Melody Sanders
- Dan Watson
- If you would like to communicate non-critical information to students, please utilize the following communication platforms:
- If you cancel your event, you do not need to send an email. Rather, change the status of your event in D.Cal to “cancelled” and everyone will know!
- D.Cal: first and foremost, please put your event information on D.Cal, the university’s new event calendaring system. It can be accessed from your computer or your mobile phone. Students will be encouraged to visit D.Cal regularly for all event information. So if you want your event to be seen, put it on D.Cal! View D.Cal at events.drury.edu.
- Social Media (Facebook, Twitter): 38+ areas of campus have registered sites where you can post a message. Go to www.drury.edu/socialmedia for a list of Drury registered sites and the administrative contact for each.
- Department sections of drury.edu
- Dorm TV and the Commons projector (send PowerPoint to email@example.com)
- Campus bulletin boards, chalk on sidewalks, table tents (Requires prior approval from Dean of Students. Please, no fluorescent paper on tables in Commons.)
- Drury Mirror (send events to firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Community calendar updates (News-Leader, TV stations, 417 magazine, KSMU, Ozarksfirst.com)
We maintain eight student lists for official university communication. These lists are deleted and recreated two weeks in to the Fall and Winter semesters and are good for general communication, but may not be right for every situation. If you require a more targeted audience, your message does not fit one of these lists, or these lists are out of date at the time of your message, please see this procedure for creating a mail merge with EX (http://www.drury.edu/academicaffairs/pdf/mailex.pdf). Please note that this type of request must be cleared by either your dean, the Director of IR&E, or Marline Faherty prior to use.
