Introduction

Phase I of the email migration started on May 21, 2018. Email accounts for all Westchester faculty and staff were migrated from on-premise servers to Office 365, a part of the Microsoft 365 cloud subscription. Phase II of the email migration began on July 9, 2018, when all ll Loyola Law School accounts were moved from Gmail to Outlook. 

The last phase of the migration entails moving all student email accounts at both Westchester and Loyola Law School from Gmail to Outlook. After consulting with student-centric business units, Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, has been selected as Student Email Day. ITS leadership will meet with GSLMU, ASLMU, and Law School student organizations to kick off a communication campaign. Over the next few weeks, students will receive email updates, a chance to participate in a pilot group, opportunities to ask questions, and more.
