HMC uses Google Groups (a service included with Google Apps for Education) for both automated and non-automated mailing lists. We began creating new ad hoc lists in Google Groups several years ago. Starting in Fall 2015 we have also begun creating automated lists such as Course, Major, Dorm, and Class year lists with Google Groups. You can read more about that migration in our FAQ. We also have a list of all automatically generated Groups (HMC login is required).
With Google Groups, you can create online and email-based groups. There’s a lot you can do with Google Groups:
- Engage in discussions about a specific subject.
- Organize meetings, conferences, or social events among members of a group.
- Find people with similar hobbies, interests, or backgrounds.
- Read group posts through email, the online interface, or both.
Available to faculty, students, staff, alumni, and emeritus at HMC.
How to Access the Service
Google Groups can be accessed at http://groups.g.hmc.edu.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request support regarding creating or modifying a mailing list. A CIS staff member will respond within one business day.
