Introduction to the Mailing List Service

In response to the desire to implement a consistent mailing list hierarchy within each unit in order to facilitate distribution of information, a Faculty-Wide Mailing List Service has been deployed by the Faculty of Applied Science.

The service is implemented as a hierarchy of units and, within each unit, a hierarchy of lists. The subscribers of the lists are automatically populated from authoritative data sources such as the UBC Human Resources Management System and the UBC Student Information System.
