Minor Email Lists

Minor e-mail lists allow instructors and students to communicate via an interactive email list.


How do I send a message to the minor list?

Address the message to the listname (i.e. math2@lists.bates.edu). The message will be sent to the faculty member(s) teaching in the department/program and all the students having declared a minor in the department/program.


Who may send a message to a minor list?

The faculty member(s) teaching in the department/program and all the students having declared a minor in the department/program, and any individuals who have been added to the list by request of the department/program chair or an advisor (i.e. area coordinators).


How do I get on or off a minor list?

These lists are generated nightly from information in the student database. If you are not on the list of a department/program, you have not properly declared your minor. If you are on a list of department/program you are no longer interested in, you need to send a message to the Office of the Registrar  requesting that you be removed as a minor in that department/program. Please direct additions to these lists for staff members or peer writing associates, as well as questions to Help Desk Services.
