Click on the appropriate category of your intended recipient. For this example, we will email a campus supervisor, Jessica Thompson. Start with clicking “Add Staff” because campus supervisors are staff members. (Note: if you have an emergency, call your supervisor. Contact information is found here.)

Names are organized by last name. To save time, you can click on the appropriate letter. For Jessica Thompson, click “T”.
