Mass Emails & Communications
Before submitting a mass email request, please consider other types of communications to deliver your message (below) to the appropriate audience. Jump to the mass email request form here.
You need to get the word out to the campus community – so you should consider all of your options and make a plan. Building a marketing plan for your message means determining the audience you want to reach and the most effective means of reaching that audience. There are many options for outreach to our campus community.
We are here to help! If you would like assistance building a marketing plan for your event, program, or announcement, please contact email@example.com or 407-823-2351.
Mass (Broadcast) emails are targeted to the campus, but reach only a small portion and may not be the most effective method of accomplishing your goal. Mass emails are limited to essential notices impacting every recipient and must comply with University policy 4-006.
We recommend you review the below options and keep an internal list of potentially relevant methods of distributing information that you regularly communicate. Please ensure that any requests to distribute information are intentional and targeted to a relevant audience (meaning that each member of the distribution group needs this information).
Hosting an event? You may need a SAFE form.
Faculty, staff, students, and departments/units planning events are required to review the SAFE form requirements and fill one out if applicable. Some parameters include more than 400 attendees, any alcohol served, or any event that includes potential for participants or property to sustain harm.

A&F Department Mass Email Request
The university’s mass email distribution system is designed to deliver critical and urgent messages to relevant FTE groups. Requests for mass emails should be limited to essential messages that cannot be effectively distributed in other ways (see examples to the right). This distribution method is reserved for one-time urgent and critical messages that are necessary to maintain safe and continuous business operations.
Administration and Finance Associate Vice Presidents and their designee(s) may request that a mass email be sent to the campus from Senior Vice President Hector or Vice President Shepherd using the form below.
Each UCF Vice President is responsible for regulating the process of mass email requests within their division. The form below is for Administration and Finance departments only.
