Listservs

The Center maintains two student listservs. Please note that the use of all University-based listservs must conform to University policy governing appropriate network usage TIS Policy Page. The first is a general, all-purpose listserv: laststudents@listserv.tulane.edu. Subscription to this listserv is optional and is available for any type of communication of interest to list members. All students will be automatically subscribed to this listserv; but students may unsubscribe at any point if they so choose. For information on how to subscribe and unsubscribe to listservs, please refer to TIS Listserv page.

The second is an announcements only lastann-l@listserv.tulane.edu. This listserv is moderated by the Graduate Advisor and is limited exclusively to communications that post announcements specifically relevant to the academic program and professional development of Latin American Studies graduate students. All Latin American Studies students will be automatically subscribed to this listserv and all students should maintain subscription to this listserv since official announcements will often be distributed via this list. The lastann-l@listserv.tulane.edu listserv should not be used as a means for commentary, discussion, or opinion-sharing. Such postings should be sent to the laststudents@listserv.tulane.edu listserv.

As the lastann-l@listserv.tulane.edu listserv editor, the Graduate Advisor reserves the right to forward any submitted posts that do not conform to the specific purpose of the announcements only lastann-l@listserv.tulane.edu listserv to the general, all-purpose laststudents@listserv.tulane.edu listserv.

Bulletin Boards

Bulletin boards are located in the kitchen area and outside the receptionistâ’‘¬’“¢s office. They are for Latin American material or materials otherwise relevant to the life of the Center. Please consult with the Stone Center receptionist if you want to post something.

Mailboxes

We have student mailboxes in the student lounge. Every graduate student in residence (not those away from New Orleans writing dissertations) will be assigned one. The Center does not mail announcements, notices of deadlines, or memos to your home address during the academic year. You will be responsible for checking your box at least once a week. Your mailbox at the Center is reserved only for mail that is relevant to your professional, academic, and graduate school business. Under no circumstances should you have personal mail sent to the Center. The Center cannot assume responsibility for the management and delivery of personal mail. Except under rare and special circumstances, the Center will not forward such mail to home addresses.
