There are numerous email lists for the convenience of Morris campus students, faculty, and staff.
These lists are intended to handle communications to Morris campus employees that are urgent, important, or of very broad general interest.
- A list serve that will include all active UMM faculty and P&A employees. This list serve will be updated automatically once each semester.
- A list serve for all active UMM civil service, AFSCME clerical, AFSCME technical, Teamsters, and LELS employees. This list serve will be updated automatically once each semester.
- A list serve that will include everyone from the UMMFACPA and UMMUSA list serves. We will also add UMMRA to this list serve, so they can stay aware of campus announcements and events. The information contained in these messages should include material that is considered of the greatest importance, required for employees' professional careers.

Guidelines for campus email lists
- Attachments cannot be correctly received by many email users. In addition, they are potential carriers of computer viruses. Do not send file attachments to any UMM lists. Instead, copy and paste the text of your file into the message body.
- University of Minnesota technology resources may not be used for commercial purposes. This restriction applies to email lists as well. Messages involving sales or solicitations must be restricted to the UMMPOSTS list only.
- Do not forward messages from others to Morris campus email lists.
- No abusive language is tolerated on any email lists.
- To be removed from the UMMPOSTS list, send mail to:
