Departmental Email / Resource Accounts

Accounts Management suggests creating departmental email accounts for things like athletic recruitment, prospective students, conferences, grants, or any long term projects. You may also use your current general department account (e.g., accounts@georgiasouthern.edu).

It’s more efficient to have a departmental account that several people can check (or one person checking the account to forward emails to the appropriate person) than having project-related emails come to/from a personal email account. Individuals may move to take on other responsibilities, leave the university, or retire. If the departmental account approach is taken, ownership can be transferred to another individual and the email stream is not lost; all email and email archives would remain intact.

Please click on the following link to request a new departmental resource or email account or to change ownership of an existing departmental resource or email account.
