Last fall, the University announced the decision to discontinue email services for staff retirees and alums. Our goal has always been to improve information security and prevent fraud. As the University received feedback related to the announcement, we decided to pause and re-evaluate our options and reopen the discussion with several offices and the University administration.
We are happy to announce an alternative email option for staff retirees and alums that will include an affiliation-branded email address allowing for their continued affiliation with the University, the ability to receive program information, and providing the necessary security and fraud prevention.
OIT will be communicating directly with retirees and alums who are using our email services regarding this new option and their next steps.
