Another Good Idea Posted on
During the past few months, we have disciplined ourselves--and
interested students, academic and administrative departments--to
collecting all the requests for e-mail announcements and consolidating
them into a weekly digest that we broadcast to alumni. It takes me a
few hours on Thursday evenings, but the transmission usually contains
8-10 items with lots of links.
TBH, I was surprised by the very positive feedback we have received from
alumni who appreciate the consolidation of messages from
different departments at the University. Of course, the fact that we
control the access to the e-mail broadcasting tool makes the management
of transmissions easier. There have only been 1-2 situations when the
administration has urged that we send a separate message and not wait
for the weekly broadcast.
