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.

Guidelines:

  • Only critical, need to know information is to be emailed to students.
  • (13) departments will have the ability to send emails to all students. 

Departments and “power users” are as follows:

Department Power User
Academic Affairs Marline Faherty
Academic Planning Cindy Fiedler
Bookstore Valerie Rains
CCPS Aaron Jones
Dean of Students Jennifer Stewart
Facilities Wendy Bird
Financial Aid Becky Ahrens
Housing Holly Binder
Human Resources Crystal Ponder
Information Services Val Serafimov
The President's Office Donna Hanley
Security Sarene Deeds
Technology Services Albert Rauch

Campus Recreation Ben Fisher
Career Planning  Emily Buckmaster
SGA Andrew Goodall
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
    • Jann Holland
    • Jennifer Stewart

  • If you would like to communicate non-critical information to students, please utilize the following communication platforms:
    • 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.
      • 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!
    • 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
    • MyDrury
    • Blackboard
    • Dorm TV and the Commons projector (send PowerPoint to dormtv@drury.edu)
    • 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 mirror@drury.edu)
    • Community calendar updates (News-Leader, TV stations, 417 magazine, KSMU, Ozarksfirst.com)

Lists:
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.
