SEND (Student E-Newsletters from Departments)


SEND (Student E-Newsletters from Departments) is a web-based program that collects submitted messages and then creates e-newsletters for students. Messages can be targeted for students in a specific college and a specific department.


SEND (Student E-Newsletters from Departments) is a web-based app that collects messages and creates a targeted weekly newsletter for students in a specific college and a specific department. 

Need to send a message to all students, regardless of college or department? Use Rebel Announcements Via Email (RAVE).

UNLV employees may submit messages, which are then reviewed and then sent by a dedicated college facilitator who approves the messages and sends the collective e-newsletter to students. Each college assigns its own facilitator.

College Facilitators

Facilitators review messages for appropriateness and to mark messages to be sent. If a college does not have a facilitator assigned, or the previous facilitator has left the university and needs to be updated, please contact the IT Help Desk. The college dean will be contacted to approve a new facilitator.
