Transfer Ownership of an E-list (Lyris)

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)


Please note that the new list owner

  • Must be a current Cornell faculty or staff member, a current Cornell student, or a Cornell alumnus, and
  • Must have an legitimate Cornell NetID.

If these criteria cannot be met, the e-list cannot be hosted at CIT.

To change list ownership, the current list owner must fill out the Discussion and Announcement E-List form. Please read the form carefully and complete all mandatory sections.

The current primary list owner should submit this request. If the current primary list owner is permanently unavailable (left the university), 

  • If the list is for a student group and the owner was a student, the advisor to the group (named when the list was created) can request the owner transfer.
  • In all other cases, someone in a management position above the current (unavailable) owner can request the transfer.

CIT's E-list Administration Team will contact you.
