Currently @wisc.edu email addresses are not consistent. Some are last name, some are first initial, middle initial, 6 characters of last name, some have numbers.
Campus is proposing a new email standard:
Campus is offering schools a choice for their school of what to list as the primary work address ie http://www.wisc.edu/ doing a search as well as listed on our local site.
NOTE: All email addresses past and present will continue to work, this decision is for display on directories.
