E-Newsletter Update

The listserv used to distribute the MN Campus Alliance E-Newsletter was originally provided by the University of Minnesota. Now that our website mncampusalliance.org is fully up and running, we plan to switch over to a proprietary lists manager with our own servers.

What does that mean for subscribers? Soon you’ll receive an email from our Mailing List Manager, requesting confirmation that you still want to subscribe to the mailing list. Simply click the  link included in that email, and you’ll remain subscribed through the new system.

This should happen very soon, so be on the lookout for our email. Please send any questions to communications@mncampusalliance.org about this or any comments about the E-Newsletter.
