Email lists

Email list services include Office 365 Groups for general lists, Google Groups for class and advisor groups, and Eloqua for email marketing.

Email services are available to students, faculty, staff, researchers and departments. Students must be a member of a registered student organization (RSO) to use this service. Class Groups and Advisor Groups are available to faculty only.

Note: A project to replace WiscList was completed in 2020.
