Mail Pouch Dates

The mail pouch service is provided by the Office of Community Engagement to all faculty members and staff to facilitate the exchange of mail between Cairo and the United States. The community engagement office acts as a liaison between faculty and staff members and the main offices on campus. Mail pouches leave the office twice per month (beginning of the month and in the middle of the month) at 12:30 pm throughout the fall and spring semesters. The date of each mail pouch is announced one week in advance and a reminder will be sent a day before each pouch leaves. Faculty and staff who wish to use this service are required to bring their mail to the Travel Office, administration building, room G020.
