There has been a lot of discussion at AAC this year about the campus-wide mass email policy. There is a variety of channels used by people on campus to get messages out, including Inside News, mass emails and the Chompergram. Member concerns include the approval process and also what kind of access there is to different community groups (students, employees).
The committee has been working with Mike Richwalsky and the division of communication to discuss a new system. Testing is now underway of a new campus daily email, which is connected to the new MyAllegheny homepage that replaced the “inside” page a few months ago.
