We also have one account per user. However, we have had to make an
exception to that rule for alums who are also employees if there is a
non-amicable separation from their job. This is because all alums get to
keep their wellelsey.edu domain credentials. So in order to let them keep
their Wellesley email, but still satisfy our requirement to terminate
accounts immediately when employees leave the college, we will create a
second account for the alum to use for personal email only.

We're working developing some formal policy, standards, and procedures
around faculty, staff, and student account terms following status changes
and I'm curious on what others are doing.
The following scenarios are some that we are struggling with, but anything
around the term process would be helpful.
Do you allow faculty with proprietary research (Emeriti in particular) to
keep hardware following retirement?
How do you handle staff terms when that staff member is also a student?
How do you handle student terms when a student is also an adjunct
