What is STAFFCHAT?
The STAFFCHAT Listserv is designed to provide a forum for UND staff to post information relevant to members of the staff University community. Only UND Benefited Staff employees are eligible to be members of this listserv.
The listserv is monitored, which means that emails to the listserv will be verified to ensure that they comply with the following guidelines before distribution. If the email does not conform to the guidelines, the sender will be notified that the email will not be distributed.
If you are unsure whether a post you wish to make falls within the STAFFCHAT guidelines, please contact UND Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org.
