Listserv Etiquette

• The listserv is for AzPAC members only; please retain member privacy when sharing general information to other professionals off list; listserv members expect their input to be confidential to nonmembers.

• Always remember that you are interacting with people so be mindful of what you write; never write anything you would not say to someone directly. Never use a list for personal attacks or profanity; if you would not say it in a crowded room for all to hear, do not write it in a message.

• Write only public (never private) messages; lists are a public forum, personal comments or criticisms should be sent directly to the person, not the entire list.

• When you are replying to a list message be sure to note to whom you are replying; lists are often set up to reply to the list. If your reply is not of interest to everyone on the list change the TO: address to the person to whom your reply is directed.

• Sign your posting including brief contact information. You can use the signature that you have set up in your mail client or simply type in the information at the end of your note.

In May 1997 almost 100 service providers for students with disabilities in Arizona's colleges and universities got together to discuss the issues facing their institutions, and how to best serve their populations. This group has now evolved into AzPAC, the Arizona Postsecondary Access Coalition.

AzPAC was conceived for universities, community colleges, trade schools, technical colleges, both public and private; any institution of higher education that struggles with the complexities of service delivery to students with disabilities.
