Google Groups are a service from Google that provides discussion groups for people sharing common interests. Google Group Directions and Help. Google Groups will now be used for ALL Williams email lists. In the past we needed to use LISTSERVS for lists that had subscribers who used non-Williams email addresses. This has now changed so we are now able to offer Google Groups for ALL email list requests.
Google Group Requests:
When filling out the form, please read through the Help sections carefully since you may select from a variety of options that will affect the way that your list works. Your request may take a few days to process- you’ll be notified via email when your Google Group is ready.
Note: Students requesting an email group must be affiliated with a Registered Student Organization. The listing of current RSOs/groups can be found here: https://student-life.williams.edu/student-involvement/student-organizations/#current-listing-of-rsos. If you are a Student Group that is not an RSO please contact Campus Life for assistance.
Other Types of Email Lists:
- Faculty who want an email list for a course can use Glow. Your Instructional Technology Liaison would be happy to show you how to create one.
- Information for students looking to create a WSO LISTSERV EMAIL LIST for a student organization may go to: https://wso.williams.edu/faq
