IT Realignment

Stay current with information about the impact to technology resources on campus as a result of the realignment and actions you need to take as a result.  Submit questions to transformation@ipfw.edu.

Email, Students - Students will be migrating from Gmail to Office 365 and their email address will change from username@students.ipfw.edu to username@pfw.edu. 

Email, Faculty and Staff - Faculty, staff, retiree, and guest email addresses will change from username@ipfw.edu to username@pfw.edu.

Campus Websites and URL - All references to IPFW in URLs and web site content will change to Purdue University Fort Wayne or Purdue Fort Wayne.  This will happen in conjunction with Marketing Communications rebranding and web modernization projects.

Software Licensing - All current licensing obtained through IU must be evaluated and obtained through different sources.

Technology Rebranding - The campus community uses many IT resources that contain references to IPFW in URLs, logos, email addresses, etc.  Each of these resources will need to be modified to update the references.

Student Data Integration - IUFW students, faculty, and staff will be afforded access to IPFW resources.  To accomplish student access, IPFW and IU are working with a consultant to integrate our student information systems to share necessary information. 

IUFW Transition - Students, faculty, and staff in Nursing, Dental, and Medical Imaging are currently supported by central IT Services at IPFW.  This will change to follow the support model used on IU campuses. 

Misc  - All other IT topics related to the realignment.
