Washington State University’s online information portal, which provides a wide array of electronic systems and services to students and staff, is being renamed “myWSU.”
The renaming effort was first proposed by the late WSU President Elson S. Floyd, who expressed concerns that the name “zzusis,” used originally to describe the WSU student information system, had evolved in common usage in recent years to describe the entire WSU online portal. The portal is used to access the student information system, but also provides access to a variety of other databases and services.
A renaming committee is currently working with WSU employees in departments and colleges all across the university to help identify instances where current references to “zzusis” in online and printed university communications will need to be changed to “myWSU.”
As a resource for colleges and departments that will need to revise such publications and websites, this web page is intended to serve as an “online toolbox,” providing graphics and other information useful in editing information and materials referencing the myWSU portal.
