Directed Communication System (DCS)


Welcome to the information page for the UNH Directed Communication System (DCS). DCS has replaced the UNH Community Special Announcement Posting or "mass mail" system. DCS is accessible via MyUNH/Blackboard under the "Directed Communication" tab.

 DCS was developed specifically to enable sending official emails to groups within the University, for example, "All Faculty," "PAT staff," "UNH undergraduate students," "UNH Faculty, Staff, and Students," etc. Since these are to be focused, official messages, members of the UNH community who want access to DCS must be approved at the Provost or Vice Presidential level. DCS was created under the guidance of the Directed Communication Working Group.

To ensure that the University community is not inundated with messages, access to the DCS is restricted to central offices and others who need to send institutional messages to broad audiences.
