Mailing Lists at North Park University


This site hosts email mailing lists for faculty, staff, and students at North Park University. The site uses the mailing list management program Mailman to manage subscriptions to the lists. Mailman provides a convenient web interface for list members as well as administrators. Links to the interfaces for all the lists are found in the lists directory.

Subscribing To a List

Find a list on the lists directory you're interested in subscribing to. Click the "members" link for that list. Scroll down, fill-in the pertinent information via the web form, and submit.

All lists are "double opt-in" and require not only submission of your email address but also confirmation of that address for the subscription to go through. Thus, you cannot subscribe someone else to a mailing list. Many lists also require list administrator approval for subscription.

Maintaining Your Subscription to a List

The "members" link will also take you to the web interface that lets you to edit your personal subscription settings. The interface has descriptions that will guide you through management of your account. For more information, see the list members FAQ.

Unsubscribing From a List

To unsubscribe, click the "members" link for your list (that link is found in the lists directory), scroll down, and fill-in the form, as appropriate.


Currently, all mailing list postings are archived. There is no guarantee, however, that the archives will be continuously maintained. Please save your own copies of important emails sent to lists you are subscribed to. See the "archive" link for your list in the lists directory.
