University Mail - Best Practices

Campus Mail Services, in partnership with Procurement Services, has recently launched a University-wide operational efficiency initiative. One key component of this initiative is to decrease the volume of insufficiently addressed and misdirected mail on campus. The mailroom receives over 100 pieces of mail per week addressed with incomplete mailing information, causing delays and costly inefficiencies. Please make sure your external partners always have complete mailing information.
