Joining the DE-All List Serve

Joining the DE-All List Serve To join the DE-ALL List Serve, each participant must contact their individual college’s Chief Information System Operator or IT department.

The CCC Chancellor’s Office has designated one alias identifier for every college. The college may point their alias identifier to any e-mail address within its domain. They can point it to one person or more than one person. The number of people added to the list serve from each college is a local decision. The individual responsible for this at the local level is the Chief Information System Officer (CISO). All request to be added to the DE-ALL list should be made to the CISO and should follow established local procedures.
