A listserv is a group email service. People can subscribe to a listserv group, and then receive emails that are posted to the listserv. University Technology Services provides the listserv system for educational, instructional, and administrative use only. Faculty, departments, colleges and organizations at the University of South Carolina may set up a listserv account. Students or student organizations must have a faculty or staff "co-sponsor" to create a listserv group.

A listserv allows an administrator to broadcast email to subscribers. It can be configured to allow all members to submit a broadcast email, or it can be set up to allow only a few members or just the administrator to submit. Group lists are easy to create and can be modified at any time. For more information, visit our Listserv page.
