Guidelines for the Liberal Arts Faculty Listservs
All full-time faculty in the School of Liberal Arts are members of the Liberal Arts Faculty Listserv (SLA-FACULTY). (Members: To modify how you receive the list messages visit https://list.iupui.edu/.)
Posts to the list are typically limited to university announcements, events, and opportunities. Select postings for activities in which faculty, staff, students are involved are also eligible for dissemination.
List submissions are accepted and posted at the discretion of the Liberal Arts Dean’s Office.
Associate/part-time faculty are members of the Oncourse Liberal Arts Associate Faculty Project Site.
Post Submission Guidelines
These are moderated lists. Thus, requests to post to the Liberal Arts faculty listserv should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Messages will typically be processed and sent within 24 hours of receipt. (Exceptions: weekends/holidays)
Personal messages (such as those regarding garage sales) are not suitable for these listservs. Dissemination alternatives include the Liberal Arts Staff list and department lists and the informal associate faculty list.
All emails for events, and other messages as appropriate, must properly include the department/program and school’s names. For example, an event organized by the Political Science Department should either begin with The Department of Political Science in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI presents or include the following somewhere in the message body: This event is presented by/sponsored by the Department of Political Science in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI. It is the responsibility of the department posting the event to include this information.
It is recommended that notices be posted no more than twice on the listservs. For example, depending on nature of an event/opportunity we propose an initial message 3 weeks in advance of the event/deadline with a reminder the week of. Single postings should be requested 1-2 weeks in advance of the event/deadline. (If you would like to promote your event/opportunity to a campus-wide audience, we also suggest JagNews & Inside IUPUI & JagTV. More options are available on the External Affairs Tools webpage)
Requests for an item to be posted twice must indicate the desired dissemination dates. Repeat postings will then be automatically generated by the list manager.
Event posting requests must contain:
- Event name
- Sponsoring entity/ies
- Cost (as applicable)
- Contact person, email, phone number
- Event url (as available)
Opportunity/Announcement emails should contain as many of the items listed for event postings (above) as is appropriate.
The post requester is responsible for all message content. We ask that you carefully proof your message and attachments before sending. The list manager is not able to provide this service.
All emails should be addressed to the list audience. Modifications to information originally designed for other audiences are the responsibility of the post requester.
Attachments are accepted within the following parameters:
- All pdf or other attachments must be accompanied by explanatory text in the body of the email.
- Attachments should not exceed 1 MB in size. For information on reducing PDF size, please visit the Adobe Help Center.
The sponsoring unit/announcement post source must be properly identified.
Reminder: All emails must include a contact person/email/phone in the body of the email.
Questions about these policies or the list may be addressed to email@example.com.
