Community Forum

In order to facilitate communication about events on campus, and other news items of broad interest, Wesleyan has established a mailing list called the Community Forum. All Wesleyan faculty, staff  and graduate students are automatically subscribed to this mailing list, though any individual may choose to unsubscribe at any time. Retired faculty and staff can use this link to request a subscription.  Under settings, individuals may choose to receive an email for every Community Forum posting, a daily digest, or may request no email updates.

To post to the Community Forum, send an email to or go to the Forum online and click “New Topic.”

Instructions on how to unsubscribe from the list appear at the bottom of each message that you receive from the list.

If you are new to the list and wish to catch up on past postings, you can view the archives of the Community Forum on the web.

Policies and Procedures
We wish to encourage easy dissemination of information about events on campus, as well as news items that would be of interest to the Wesleyan community.

Please refrain from postings that would not be of interest to the entire faculty, staff, and broader Wesleyan community. For those who have access, the Faculty Forum email list would be the best place to post notices about courses and faculty meeting business.

No endorsements of (or exhortations against) political candidates or campaigns may be made via the Community Forum due to IRS revised ruling 2007-41, 2007-25 I.R.B (June 18, 2007), which states that “organizations that are exempt from income tax….may not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office.” These restrictions have been interpreted to extend to nonprofit websites and other electronic resources.

To register a complaint about a posting or content that violates our policies and procedures, please email forum-complaints@wesleyan.eduAny content that violates the above guidelines can be removed at any time.
