Listserv Policy

In accordance with the UH and State policies regarding the use of listservs, the GSO has drafted a policy of decorum for the use of this valuable resource for communication and information sharing. Please note that all UH and State policies, laws and regulations apply as per UH PPIS – EP 210. However, it is our hope that GSO General Assembly Members and Executive Committee Members will further abide by a policy of decorum for the respectful and productive use of the GSO listservs.

The GSO General Assembly listserv shall be used as a positive and constructive tool for communication and information sharing among the GSO General Assembly.

The GSO General Assembly listserv is available for use by all GSO General Assembly members and Executive Committee members to:

  1. Announce important upcoming events that are of pertinent interest to the General Assembly and/or their graduate student constituents,

  2. Share information that is of pertinent interest to the General Assembly and/or their graduate student constituents,

  3. Call for participants for GSO-related activities,

  4. Provide input to topical discussions regarding issues that are of pertinent interest to the General Assembly and/or their graduate student constituents, and,

  5. Provide input to topical discussions regarding GSO policies or activities.

Emails sent only to relevant representatives. The listserv shall not be used to air personal grievances or as a proxy for communication with the GSO Executive Committee members.

If repeated and persistent misuse of the listserv by individual members occurs, those specific members will receive a warning. If misuse continues, those specific members will lose permission to post messages except through a moderator. If repeated and persistent misuse of the listserv becomes a general issue among many members, the listserv will be reformatted as a moderated listserv. All members may continue to post, but all messages will be moderated by the GSO Secretary.
