Directory to Include Only Preferred Name

In order to comply with new federal regulations and an Employee Assembly resolution, and at the request of the Department of Inclusion & Workforce Diversity, beginning on January 10, 2017, the Enterprise Directory and Active Directory will be modified to include only the preferred name.

All name attributes including sn and givenName will be populated with the preferred name rather than legal name. The attribute cornelledulegalname will no longer be available. No other attributes are being added or removed, so programs looking up the name will continue to work without modification, but the values used to populate them will change.
