A Broadcast Email Message has the following characteristics:

  • It is an email message sent by individuals, organizations and departments within Boston University to other members of the University community, including alumni and parents of current or former BU students.
  • In general, the target population is a group selected on the basis of one or more shared characteristics, e.g., all freshmen, the undergraduates within a college, or all faculty and staff.
  • The target population is typically large, commonly numbering at least in the hundreds.

Specific guidelines oversee the Broadcast Email process, as outlined in these pages.
