  1. Hi Nathan.  Please be sure to talk to the Advancement Services staff regarding preferred names.  They also track other names such as nicknames, names specific to a university notables such as the president, VP for advancement, deans, etc.  Advancement also tracks preferred joint mail names, formal and informal recognition names, prefixes, suffixes, name at registrar, etc.  Thanks!

    1. Hi Jaime. Thanks for the suggestion! We're definitely talking with Advancement about preferred names: with Walt for coordination across data custodians, and with others for specifics on the types of names they collect and use.
