Message Center Resources
Feeling overwhelmed by email?
The RIT Message Board
is an option of receiving official RIT communications instead of email.
There is a better way to organize your official RIT
email and other campus notifications via Message Center. The goal of Message
Center is to create a trusted source of university communication that allows
you to identify what communications you want to receive and how you want to
receive that information. Key features include:
ability to receive messages via email or view messages on a message board,
or select both.
categories – Categories have been created to include mandatory (“Institute
Emergencies” and “Important Institute Announcements”) and 17 optional messages so you can get a sense of what each
communication is about before reading it. This feature
allows you to select the amount of communication you want to receive.
capabilities - while you will not be able to opt-out of mandatory
communications (e.g. Institute emergencies, Institute closings, etc.), you
will have the opportunity to opt-out of the 17 “general announcement”
- You can personalize your user preferences by
clicking on the “Manage My Communication Preference” in the “My Message
Board” portlet found in the myRIT
In today's world of spam and “scam” emails it is
important for RIT students, faculty and staff to be able to easily determine
that the RIT communications they receive are valid. All Message Center emails
you receive will originate from a single Message Center email address and
standard text will appear at the end of every message identifying Message
Center as the source of the message.
RIT faculty or staff wishing to become a Message
Center administrator, giving the ability to send messages, should submit their
request to the ITS Service Desk.
