Google Groups

SUNY College at Old Westbury has determined a solution for group messaging to campus users. A Google Group serves as an email distribution, which allows users to communicate to a group of people for operational purposes through one email address.

Email list groups created in Google Groups are different from the contact groups you can create in your “My Contacts”. The primary difference is that a contact group is for your personal use, while a Google Group can be used by more than one person, and has its own email address in the Directory. For more information on the differences, click the link in the right-hand column.

Groups will only be established for operational units upon request. A Group Administrator must be identified for each requested group and that administrator will be responsible for inviting, adding, updating and deleting members of the group.

Request for a Group can be made using the Google Groups Request Form.
