Broadcast Messages
In order to distribute important University news to the campus community, a broadcast messaging utility is used. This messaging utility is available for use by designated University officials approved by the President. The broadcast messaging utility allows critical University messages to reach all CCSU e-mail accounts with no provision for “opting out.”

Broadcast messages are restricted to the following categories of information deemed important to the unit addressed:

  • Campus Announcements - notices of importance to members of the University community (e.g., special announcements from the President, weather related cancellations, delays or closings, emergency notifications, information on major campus events, and important bulletins).
  • Facilities Management - notices concerning campus construction and other projects impacting daily operations.
    Information Technology - notices concerning University computer services.
  • Human Resources - notices of essential Human Resources matters (e.g., payroll and benefits).
  • Business Services - notices of essential Business Services matters (e.g., policies and purchasing).
  • Public Safety - notices pertaining to parking, traffic, crime alerts, and campus safety issues.
  • Academic Affairs and Registration - notices pertaining to registration, grade posting, and transcript information.
