Faculty & Staff Email

Project Overview:

All faculty/staff will continue to utilize Office 365/O365/Outlook email system.  Once permission has been received from the Higher Learning Commission, their email accounts will all be transitioned to a new email address (PFW.edu) before July 1, 2018.

Reasoning Behind the Change:

On July 1, 2018 our Fort Wayne campus will officially become a Purdue campus.  This transition will require ITS to change all email addresses to coincide with the new name.

Schedule of Implementation:

The tentative high-level project timeline is as follows:

December 2017 Hard timeline confirmed
February 2018 Testing (once HLC approval has been received)
March 2018 Notification of Next Steps
April 2018 Transition for Faculty/Staff

Our project team is working within a small window due to the Higher Learning Commission’s (HLC) timing (they meet in February/March).  Due to the requirements regarding the name change which includes address and architectural revamps, all activity must take place between HLC’s approval (March) and July 1, 2018.

Impact:

Email addresses will change from IPFW.edu to PFW.edu, and all references to them must be updated.
