Scheduling U Workshops

Scheduling U workshops are set to run October 15-19 this year. An abbreviated format will be offered this year and all schedulers are strongly encouraged to attend. Sessions will be offered on the East Bank, West Bank and in St Paul.

The workshop will include an overview of the scheduling distribution policy outcomes, information about the new scheduling software acquisition, details on the current PeopleSoft coding project (which impacts Components, Locations, Delivery Mediums and Instructor Modes), and other relevant news.

For more information about the sessions, you can reference the scheduling U 2012 website.

Paper Paychecks (Non- Automatic Deposit)

Many of you received Kathy Brown's announcement informing us of the decision to consolidate the Office of Human Resources (OHR) operations into one physical space in the West Bank Office Building. As part of this move, the bi-weekly paycheck pickup will happen at WBOB instead of Donhowe on each pay date beginning on October 17, 2012. Effective with this change, CLA units on both the east bank and the west bank will be expected to pick up their bundles of "paper" pay checks (i.e non-automatic deposit) directly from WBOB. Units are encouraged to use this opportunity to strongly encourage those receiving paper checks to sign up for direct deposit. Many have already done so as we have been told there has been an uptick in sign-ups resulting from this decision to consolidate operations in WBOB. Employees can visit Employee Self Service to make this election.

The First Year Common Reading

An announcement from Associate Dean Jennifer Windsor for Undergraduate Programs

You may be aware that there are faculty-led activities scheduled for students during week 7 around the first year common reading, Never Let Me Go. For anyone who has read or wants to read the book, I would like to invite you to join me and share your thoughts and impressions during a one-time book club meeting. The book club will be a brown bag lunch on Tuesday, October 16 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm in Johnston Hall room 202. Cookies will be served.

Please RSVP to Diane Haugen at dmhaugen@umn.edu. I'm looking forward to a lively discussion.
