Stop UCD removing alumni email access
UCD needs to honour its promise to its alumni community and allow them to keep access to their "email for life", as was promised to them.
Why is this important?
Considering the valuable contribution the alumni community makes to the university, the reasons outlined by management are not good enough for the university to row back on this assurance of an "email for life" that was made almost a decade ago. "low usage of the service" does not equate to no usage, as is evidenced by the high volume of complaints to UCDSU and visible on social media.
Many former UCD students have used the address they acquired in university as their primary email address for many years off the back of this assurance and it forms a part of the connection that they still maintain with their alma mater. Such a move could potentially damage alumni relations and make it harder, or less attractive for alumni to support the university in the future.
We call upon UCD management to reverse this decision.
