Preferred Name Policy - Staff
UW-River Falls supports the use of preferred names for faculty and staff, while maintaining the official, legal name required for payroll records and data integrity. Your updated name will be reflected in all campus directory accounts. Click here to complete the online forms.
Preferred Name Policy - Students
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls will begin implementation of the Preferred Name Policy in September 2017. The goal of the Preferred Name policy is a consistent preferred name experience across University systems and use of one's preferred name wherever a legal name is not absolutely necessary. The University's infrastructure is multi-faceted and complex so there are still some systems where the implementation of preferred name will be forthcoming.
