Centrally maintained productivity and collaboration tools support email, distribution lists, project management, workgroup communication, etc.
Stamford International University uses the Microsoft’s Office 365 for Education suite to provide email and online collaboration tools to all members of the University (students, faculty and staff). Generic mailboxes are provided on a per request basis and require sponsorship for staff / faculty.
Distribution (Mailing) Lists
Several email distribution lists are available for internal use at Stamford International University (Thailand). Emails sent to these lists are distributed to the inboxes of all list members. For the sake of convenience, the lists are based on functional groups within the University. Additionally, certain lists are meant for distribution within a specific Stamford campus only.
