Internal Communications at SUNY Geneseo

Below is a quick reference guide to internal communications. It is not comprehensive but provides the highlights.

The full list of listservs and details about how each list is to be used, as well as who the moderators are for each list, are available on the CIT wiki.

How to Communicate with Faculty and Staff

Today at Geneseo – for messages that are intended for faculty and staff. Sent daily unless there are no submissions. Events are NOT accepted. View the submission guidelines and form.

Upcoming Events for Faculty and Staff – faculty and staff events newsletter that's automatically generated from the online events calendar (shows all events marked for faculty and staff). Sent every Monday and Wednesday morning during the semester. In-person events with a room reservation are added to the calendar automatically, but you must fill out the event information form to make sure your listing in the calendar and newsletter includes a description, photo, and audience info. If you're holding an event in a location that doesn't need to be reserved or if your event is online-only, please submit the event directly to the calendar.

Listservs – full list of available lists, moderators and definitions of the types of information that can be sent can be found on the CIT wiki. Please note that allstaff-L is only used for Cabinet-level communications, crisis/issues communication and human resources-related information

General Event Publicity - for a complete list of ways to promote your event, see the Student Organization Event Publicity website, which includes how to promote your event in residence halls, dining halls, and academic buildings.

Social Media - promote your event and information via social media and be sure to @ mention @SUNYGeneseo in your post so the College can easily amplify/share your post. Instagram is the most widely used social media channel among students.

Studentnews-L – information that is useful for students to know, but not required. It's used mainly by administration for important news and information for students, which merits its own specific email. 

Allstudents-L – only used for information that is REQUIRED for students to know to continue in good standing.
