Internet2 Communications Management
Internet2 is a thriving community precisely because our members recognize that Internet2 exists to help the community accomplish those things we can achieve together that we could never accomplish as individual institutions. Our members have told us that they value being aware of what is going on with Internet2 and engaging with other members. Internet2 uses a variety of electronic communications channels, but our principal form of outreach remains e-mail.
E-mail Announcement Subscriptions
No matter your role, it’s likely that you will find value in all of the Internet2 email channels, so you are encouraged to try them all on for size. When we’ve asked our members about communications, they have told us that (a) over-communicating is better than communicating too little, and (b) they’d like us to clearly identify Internet2 communications as to the source (Internet2) and topic. This way, they may quickly and easily filter those communications either manually or automatically. We’ve designed our communications around these recommendations.
To access and manage your email/communication preferences:
• NOTE: Consider refraining from selecting "Opt out from all email communications" – as this will remove you from ALL Internet2 announcement communications. Instead, consider managing your subscriptions to a lesser amount
Certain communications from Internet2 are necessary for business matters. Individuals in key roles (e.g., Executive Liaisons; billing contacts) will not be able to remove themselves from the channels used for these business purposes due to the importance of these communications.
