What is a Mass Email?

The Department of Advancement Services assists Development & Alumni Affairs in their efforts to communicate with alumni by providing a forum for sending mass emails to large groups of individuals. Development & Alumni Affairs staff members can create html emails to relay information on upcoming events such as lectures, homecoming events, chapter events, holiday greetings or new program announcements. Users are asked to submit mass email requests at least 3 days prior to the requested send date.


How to submit a Mass Email request

Only trained Advance users should submit mass email requests, as it is a multi-step process requiring the creation of a recipient list and the saving of a clipboard in Advance, the creation of a text and html file and the submission of the mass email request via the request form. Users should reference Advance Manuals & Documentation for the How-To process and Mass Email Policy, as well as the Mass Email Request Form for official submission.
