Oregon Sea Grant maintains several email lists on OSU's mailman server; most are intended for use by specific internal groups, but a few are open to the public.

To avoid spam and malicious mail, our lists are availlable only by subscription, and all subscription requests must be approved by a list administrator. 

Running lists from the campus server, rather than individual email boxes, makes it easier for subscribers to engage in fruitful discussions - or to eliminate discussion entirely (for instance, creating distribution-only lists for electronic newsletters or event registrations).

Faculty or staff who would like to set up a new list for Sea Grant-related purposes may contact Rick Cooper at Sea Grant Communications to find out more.

(Note: If you use strong email spam filtering, you may need to add lists.oregonstate.edu to your approved senders/whitelist in order to receive messages via the list server.)

To manage your own subscription to a Sea Grant list, or to find and subscribe to other lists, visit: lists.oregonstate.edu

Public lists (open to subscription by request) 

These are announcement-only lists, not discussion lists; subscribers will receive periodic announcements but may not post to the lists. They are closely monitored to prevent spam. You may unsubscribe at any time, and we do not share our lists with anyone else. To request a subscription by email, contact the list administrator and specify the name of the list.

  • sg-rfp - An open-subscription list for researchers wishing to receive news about our biennial call for competitive research proposals.
  • sg-fellowshipannouncement - An open-subscription list for those who wish to receive announcements about Sea Grant and NOAA fellowship opportunities.
