Using a ListServ
CCAS maintains two ListServs to facilitate discussion and networking among its members: email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org (associate and assistant deans). Only those enrolled in a ListServ are able to post messages to that ListServ.
To enroll: Write email@example.com with SUBSCRIBE TO LISTSERV in the subject line.
To unsubsribe: Write firstname.lastname@example.org with UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line.
Should anyone wish to post to a ListServ for which they are not a member (e.g., an assistant dean wishing to post a query to deans), send your query to email@example.com, and we will post it for you and see that you receive the responses.
Primary purposes of the ListServs are:
1) To query fellow deans about institutional practices and policies. Those that generate sufficient discussion will be summarized and posted in the listserv archive (under Members Only).
2) To help form multi-institutional panels for the Annual Meeting.
3) To seek names of faculty who might serve as peer reviewers for promotion and tenure decisions.
4) To survey others about institutional practices. Typically, instructions are included to send responses directly to the sender rather than posting to the ListServ.
As always, direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
