New Mailing List for Undergraduates Planned

New Mailing List For Undergraduates Planned

Undergraduate Association President Andrew T. Lukmann ’07 is planning to create a new mailing list for all undergraduates to “keep them in the know about campus issues.” The first e-mail will inform undergraduate students about the issue of whether MIT should divest from Sudan or not. This comes as the Advisory Committee for Shareholder Responsibility was reactivated last week to consider whether MIT should divest from Sudan. (See the statement from the ACSR below for more information.)

Lukmann said that undergraduates can expect to receive an e-mail every couple of days through the mailing list, tentatively named undergrads-inform@mit.edu. Information Services & Technology has not yet been informed of the plan for a new mailing list, Lukmann said, but he expects that it will be approved because “they [IS&T] are there to serve the undergrad population.”

Undergraduates would have the ability to opt-out of the new list, Lukmann said. He also said that in two to three months he hopes that funding will be secured for a renovation of the UA Web site that would include a blog or forum to gather more student feedback.
