Ostrow Listservs & Organizational Accounts

Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry Listservs

Ostrow Student Listservs:

The Wilson Dental Library currently creates and maintains a listserv for each student group at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. The lists are private and not available to the larger USC community and only those with usc.edu accounts can send messages. 

There are current lists for: 

  • All DDS Classes

  • All DH Classes

  • Advanced Speciality Students (list includes ALL years of Advanced Specialty Students)

  • Online students (list includes ALL years of Online students)

  • All ASPID Classes (ASPID Classes also include in DDS lists) 

Student listservs are to be used as a means for students to communicate with one another regarding academic activities and events. Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry faculty and staff may also use the lists to communicate academic information to students. Because the lists are used primarily to report academic information, students may not unsubscribe. Students cannot add others to the lists and can contact wdl@usc.edu to troubleshoot any issues. 

Students may not engage in unethical, unprofessional, abusive or harassing behaviors on Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry listservs. Please refer to the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry Code of Ethics and Behavioral Guidelines for more information about what constitutes unethical and unprofessional behavior at the School. A student who is alleged to engage in this type of behavior will be reported to the Ostrow Student Professional Performance Evaluation Committee (SPPEC).
