What is a Group ID and how do I create one?

A Group ID is a shared Wayne Connect account used by a group of people in one department and/or unit.


Group IDs are only available to full-time employees with management authorization and to approved student organizations. Student organization registered presidents or officers must make the request and obtain approval from the Dean of Students Office (DOSO). Groups not recognized by DOSO may be approved by advisors or faculty members.


  • Group access to a shared office email address (e.g. yourdepartment@wayne.edu).
  • Multiple-employee access to departmental calendar.
  • Ability to send bulk email announcements about university events to pre-selected groups.
