What is a Google Group?

Google Groups makes it easy for groups of people—such as project teams, departments, or committees—to communicate and collaborate. You can send an email to everyone in a group with one address, invite a group to an event, or share documents with a group. You can also create an online forum to discuss a popular technology or answer questions about a product.

Why would I create a Google Group?

Previously, all university email "aliases" were managed through Banner SSB Email Alias Management within The Nest.  SJU migrated all existing aliases to Google Groups. 

Managers of a group can update group memberships, share documents to a group, and even invite an entire group to a calendar event. Managers can also determine who can send to the group and allow others to co-manage the group membership. Find out more about Google Groups and their possibilities on the SJU G Suite Resource Site.
