Changes to VIP email

To improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our mass internal email processes, the VIP email process was discontinued effective March 1, 2013.

If you would like to send a mass internal email to a large audience (e.g., all students, faculty, and/or staff) using Lyris, all requests must now be directed to University Relations.

Use of the U's mass internal email system is governed by the following principles:

To request the sending of a mass internal email through University Relations, you will need the approval of a University vice president or vice provost. Contact your office's or unit's communications staff to initiate this request. If it is determined by your staff communicator that a mass email is appropriate, that person will contact University Relations to schedule your email. Please provide University Relations at least one week's notice to process your email request.

See Internal mass e-mail resources and rationale for more information about mass internal email processes and procedures.
