STUDENT LISTSERV POLICY

Beginning Spring 2019, the Price School will be initiating a new student listserv policy.  The purpose of the listservs will be to disseminate Price School official communiques, provide information that is important to students as they progress through their academic programs, and provide information on events and opportunities that might be of interest to students.  This new policy is more in conformity with the listserv policies of other schools at USC and with the university listserv policy.

The Price School will now have four types of listservs:

  1. Degree Program listservs
  2. Career Services listserv
  3. Research Center/Initiative listserv
  4. Student Organizations listserv

These listservs will be used for the dissemination of information and not for discussion.  Posting will be limited to faculty, staff, and students who serve in official administrative capacities within the school, and permissions to post will be set based on the individual’s administrative role.

Listservs
Degree Program Listservs. Posting on the Price School degree program listservs will limited to official communiques and information that is important to students as they progress through the program. These listservs will not be used to communicate student organization events, optional careers services opportunities, job announcements, or research center events and opportunities.

Posting will be limited to:
o Respective departmental staff (department chair/program director/program administrator)
o Dean’s Office staff
o Student Affairs staff
o Career Services staff

o Diversity, Equity and Inclusion staff
o IT staff
o Communications staff
o Development staff

The current student listservs will be referred to as the degree program listservs. Other than those who are eligible to post, faculty and staff will not automatically be members of these lists and will not have the ability to post to these listservs. Faculty, staff and students who would like to have information posted to the degree program listservs should forward their messages to the appropriate department chair or program administrator or to individuals in the offices listed above.

All students will be members of their respective listservs. Each student will be a member of the listserv of the degree they’re enrolled in and the degree level (e.g., MPA students would be on the MPA listserv pricempa-l@mylists.usc.edu and the all master’s student listserv pricemstrs-l@mylists.usc.edu

Since e-mail is the primary medium we will be using to communicate important USC and Price policies, students will not have the ability to opt out.

Faculty and staff may opt in. Instructions for doing so are in the Opt In section below.

Individuals who would like to have information posted on the Degree Program Listservs should forward their messages to the appropriate degree program administrator: https://priceschool.usc.edu/students/academics/academic-programs-office/

Listserv Guidelines
These listservs are for sharing only information that is pertinent to students as they progress through their academic programs and are not to be used to engage in political discourse, express political opinions, or for personal use. Failure to abide by these guidelines may result in the revoking of posting privileges.

Listserv Etiquette
Since students have reported being inundated with email. If you are designed as a person who can post, please abide by the following guidelines:

• Please do not repost messages that have already been posted to the same listserv.
• Please do not “reply all” to the listserv when you agree or disagree with an event, process, or policy. One way to ensure that people do not “reply all” is to use the “Bcc” line for the listserv post rather than the “To” line.

Listserv Management
The Price Student Affairs Office will provide overall listserv management. They will populate the listservs each semester and add those who wish to opt in.
