Numerals 1 and 10 through 19 will not be used to avoid confusion with the lower case letter L.
Faculty and staff email addresses
Email addresses will be based on the faculty or staff member's legal name as recorded by Human Resources.
A very limited number of exceptions will be allowed (see #3)
For email addresses where the first and last name total more than 19 characters, the last name will be included in full and the first name will be truncated appropriately
Existing faculty and staff email addresses will be converted to the new schema beginning June 15, 2009.
Existing email addresses will be aliased to the new email addresses.
Email directed to the exiting email addresses will continue to be delivered as usual.
Existing user account names used to log into most college information systems must continue to be used. The new email addresses will not function as authentication credentials, including logging into the email system.
Faculty and staff email address exceptions
In keeping with the primary objective of this proposal, exceptions may be granted to faculty and staff to select a preferred name rather than using their legal name as a basis for their email address according to the following criteria:
A faculty or staff member is commonly known by their middle name rather than their first name
