A Google Group is a communication tool that can be configured several different ways, depending on your needs.  Bucknell University Google Groups must be requested using the form in myBucknell.

You can use a Google Group for the following types of communication:

  • Course Group – This group automatically syncs the membership based on the students enrolled in a class.
  • Discussion List – This group configuration allows all the members to have email conversations with each other – they can all send and receive messages.
  • Email Alias Group – This group configuration allows you to publish an email address to the campus community or public.
  • Distribution List – This group configuration allows a group owner or manager to send messages to all the group members.  In most distribution lists, the members cannot post or respond to messages.
