To request a listserv, contact the Technology Assistance Center (TAC) and provide the following information: (1) The name of the listserv (i.e., Tactraining - for TAC Training Updates) and (2) the name and email address(es) of the listserv administrator(s).

Note to Student Organizations: You may obtain a Listserv for your Student Organization by filling out the Technology Request Form (online submission). This form is located on the Student Affairs site.
