Email Distribution Groups

A distribution list is a group of contacts (email addresses), usually grouped under a single name or address. ITS maintains various distribution groups in Google Contacts. Each department has a department group and can be used at any time. Larger groups such as Student class groups and employee groups will require authorization by submitting an application.
