Policy and Guidelines for Use
The AIEA listserv is intended to provide a quick and easy way of using e-mail to exchange information, ask questions, and stimulate debate on the internationalization of higher education with your fellow professionals. The AIEA listserv is open to AIEA members and members are automatically subscribed for the duration of their membership, upon receipt of membership dues. Members whose membership has expired will have access to the listserv for a short grace period, and will be removed from the listserv within 30 days of membership expiration. 

How to Post

Send the message from the email address affiliated with your AIEA account to [email protected]. If you are looking for a response, please include your email address in the body of your email, as it will not appear in the post once it has been sent out. 

Do not include a message to the Secretariat or instructions, such as "Please forward this to the listserv," as the messages will go directly to the membership as-is and there is no option to edit posts. 

The listserv is on moderated status, which means it could take up to 3-5 business days for the message to go out. Many thanks for your patience. 

Before posting, please read the following guidelines carefully, including the preferred way to format and the the "fine print."

The AIEA list can be used to:
  • Circulate messages on issues concerning AIEA and on the internationalization of higher education
  • Announce job vacancies in international education
  • Announce not-for-profit conferences, events, or training opportunities relevant to international education leadership
  • Seek guidance on internationalization issues on campus
  • Inform members about current research on internationalization
Before sending an announcement to the AIEA list, please ask yourself if your message could be considered "marketing." If yes, it is probably not appropriate for the AIEA listserv.
The AIEA listserv should NOT be used to:
  • Advertise commercial products and services, such as books, travel opportunities and the like
  • Announce activities which are not clearly relevant to senior-level international educators
  • Announce invitations to specific events during the AIEA Annual Conference 
  • Forward "chain letters," warnings of"'virus threats," or "test" messages.
  • Request counseling on personal issues or seek funding or scholarships
  • Express grievances on personal or local issues.
  • Discuss personal political/religious beliefs and/or serve as a “soapbox” on issues
  • Distribute personal job or internship search postings or personal résumés/cv's.
  • Post specific conference sessions/workshops
  • Post press releases
  • Post duplicate or repeated information about non-AIEA events, jobs, surveys, etc. 
  • Promote institutional programs and/or recruit participants  
  • Send out surveys for research purposes for academic research or organizational data collection/research/publications 
If you are uncertain whether the content of your message is appropriate for the AIEA Listserv, please send a copy to the AIEA Secretariat and ask for advice.

  • Language: Please post all your messages in English or add an English translation and keep them concise. The AIEA Listserv has a limit to the message length and will automatically reject any messages that are too long.
  • Subject Line: Make sure the Subject line of your message is clear and specific so that people can quickly decide if they want to read it. Please include any relevant deadlines in the subject. 
  • Attachments: Do NOT try to include attachments in AIEA Listserv messages. The AIEA Listserv will reject messages with attachments, so your message will bounce back to you. Simply "copy and paste" the contents of the attachment into your e-mail message, or refer the reader to a web page with the detailed information.
  • Reply Function: The AIEA Listserv "Reply" function has been set to send replies to listserv messages to the original sender.  
  • Please do not use ALL CAPS (words entirely in uppercase) for the subject or body of the email. 
  • The maximum size of an email (including any attachments) is 5 MB. 
The Fine Print
