​OnBase was upgraded Friday and Saturday from version 16 to 17.  The new look was designed by Hyland to be more similar to Microsoft Office 2016.  In the web client, there is a new “hamburger” menu,  which will be used to navigate to new forms, workflow and custom queries. 

For Department Office Managers, we are adding a “Unity Pop” link to your most common email notifications (invoices and PRs for now … let us know how you like it).  The current link to open the document in the web client will still exist, but following that will be an additional link that will open the document in a Unity Client window, if you have the Unity Client installed.

Thick Client users have received an email about upgrading. 

Directions for uninstalling/reinstalling the Unity Client are here:   https://share.emporia.edu/onbase/OnBase17Unit%20ClientInstallInstructions.pdf

Safari 11 is now supported.  Visit www.emporia.edu/onbase to view supported browsers or to install the Unity Client. 

Unity client and web client (Internet Explorer only) users can ensure their OnBase Settings are correct by running this:  X:\OnBase\OnBase Settings\OnBaseSettings.reg.  Empty Internet Explorer cache if you have problems logging in. 

Please contact the Helpdesk at 341-5555 if you need assistance.

The women's locker room in HPER will be closed throughout the summer for a major remodeling.  Women wanting to use the swimming pool are asked to come dressed for swimming or change in the Faculty Women's Locker Room or in the lower level Women's Restroom.  The Varsity Athletic Women's locker rooms will also be closed during this time.  This remodeling will improve the aesthetics and finishes of the women's locker room and provide improved accessibility and privacy for the users.  We hope the outcome will be worth the inconvenience.  Thanks for your patience and cooperation.

The High Impact Learning Committee is interested in receiving additional proposals for high impact learning experiments that will be tested next year. If you have a promising but untested idea for providing students with a high impact learning experience, please consider submitting a your application by Friday, May 4.  We are looking for learning experiences that have not been tried before, the results of which could be shared campus-wide.  We are NOT able to consider proposals for projects such as faculty mentored undergraduate research where the value is already well established, nor can we honor equipment requests or projects that have previously received funding. Projects of around $5,000.00 are considered.

The application can be downloaded at the High Impact Learning Committee website.  Thank you for considering this request.

​Emporia State University's Special Collections and Archives would like to welcome you to enjoy the May Massee Virtual Reality Experience, now available on its website at https://www.emporia.edu/libsv/archives/. Select the May Massee banner on the carousel to enter the experience.

Who was May Massee? Born in 1881 in Chicago, May was a librarian in Wisconsin and Buffalo for ten years before becoming the editor of the American Library Association's Booklist Publication in 1913. In 1922 May became one of the first female children's book editors in the United States. She served in this role for over four decades, publishing works from such renowned authors and illustrators as Robert McCloskey (Make Way for Ducklings), Ludwig Bemelmans (Madeline), and Munro Leaf (The Story of Ferdinand).

This virtual reality experience allows you to explore May's Office and interact with hotspots that include images from May's life and career and text that tells her story.

This project was completed by Brady Lund, a practicum student from Emporia State University's School of Library and Information Management.

We welcome any feedback on the experience. You may reach us at blund2@g.emporia.edu and/or archives@emporia.edu. ​

​The women's locker room in HPER will be closed throughout the summer for a major remodeling.  Women wanting to use the swimming pool are asked to come dressed for swimming or change in the Faculty Women's Locker Room or in the lower level Women's Restroom.  The Varsity Athletic Women's locker rooms will also be closed during this time.  This remodeling will improve the aesthetics and finishes of the women's locker room and provide improved accessibility and privacy for the users.  We hope the outcome will be worth the inconvenience.  Thanks for your patience and cooperation.

University Facilities will be shutting off the steam to campus starting Sunday, May 13, 2018 and turning it back on Monday, May 21, 2018 to complete a series of repairs to the boilers inside the Power House.  This will mean no hot water will be available to any building on campus with the exception of the P.E. Building, which has its own boilers, ESU Foundation and the Earl Center. Cold water will still be available for drinking and restrooms.  Please contact Mark Runge, Director of Facilities, with any questions or concerns at mrunge@emporia.edu or 341-5331.

University Facilities is starting to turn on the air conditioning across campus.  This is in anticipation of temperatures in the upper 70's and low 80's starting this weekend and running through next week. The process takes several days to complete.  Memorial Union has air conditioning already.  Residential Life will be next on Wednesday or Thursday.  The other campus buildings will come on late this week and early next week.  Please contact me (mrunge@emporia.edu or 341-5331) If you have any questions.  Thanks for your patience as we went through an odd mid-season switchover with several hard freezes over the past two weeks.

​Whether they are walking the halls of Congress to help educate the Hill on the differences in nuclear reactors or belting out their favorite tunes with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC, it is hard to miss Samuel Brinton and their bright red mohawk. The signature hairstyle started as a dare in graduate school and continues to turn heads, along with Sam’s characteristic stilettos.

Sam is an ardent activist against the dangerous and discredited practices of conversion therapy. Their work consists of weekly trips to universities across the country to share their experiences and to educate on how to pass legislation banning the practice. They spoke before the United Nations, Google Headquarters, and Congress, and also featured in interviews with TIME, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Washington Post, The Guardian, New York Daily News, and many others.

You might not expect a nuclear scientist from Kansas to have a bright red mohawk, but that is part of the reason Samuel has it. Having a chat on preconceptions is right up their alley. Whether it’s on technical topics or social issues like supporting LGBT survivors of conversion therapy, Samuel is always willing to have the tough conversations with an open mind. 

Come find out about consent and safety with our keynote speaker for PRIDE week, Sam Brinton

The final production of Emporia State University Theatre’s spring season is Joseph Kesselring’s 1940 farcical black comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace”. Opening night has finally arrived! Featuring a man who thinks he is Theodore Roosevelt, homicidal old women, and a drama critic trying to get married, the show is a classic example of the comedy that stems from a normal person attempting to survive in a world of absurd circumstances. Each showing will feature a special guest appearance, making each night unique! For tickets, visit the Memorial Union Ticket Office, tickets.emporia.edu, or call 620-341-6378

On Monday, April 30 at 7:30 PM, Emporia State University alums Ian Burch and Pat Janssen will discuss their sound design careers in the Ronald Q. Frederickson Theatre. Burch and Janssen are presenting the Pflaum Memorial Lecture entitled "Sound in Entertainment: A Talk with Sound Designers for Stage, Screen, and Everything In Between."  The lecture is presented by the ESU Department of Communication and Theatre with additional support from the ESU Special Events Board.

Ian Burch currently works as a Senior Engineer at Diablo Sound of California Institute of the Arts in North Hollywood, Calif. Burch graduated from ESU in 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre, then went on to study at the California Institute of the Arts, earning a Master of Fine Arts in 2005. Burch has also done work as a Sound/Video Supervisor at South Coast Repertory, and as an Assistant Technical Director of Sound and Video at the Roy and Edna Disney/Cal Arts Theatre (REDCAT).

Pat Janssen (BFA, 2008) is a Los Angeles based sound editor, re-recording mixer, and engineer. After graduating from ESU, he went on to earn a Master's of Fine Arts from the California Institute of the Arts in 2011.   At ESU, he was active in all aspects of production.  He performed in numerous ESU Theatre productions and was also active with Zoiks!  Janssen's film projects have played in theaters and festivals all over, including Sundance, SXSW and AFI. Jannsen has worked sound design for multiple theme parks including Universal Studios Orlando, The Making of Harry Potter and the San Diego Zoo.​

The Pflaum Lecture is held annually to honor the memory of Dr. George R.R. Pflaum who came to Kansas State Teacher's College in 1923 and served on the faculty for over forty years. The Pflaum Memorial Lecture will be free and open to the public on April 30 at 7:30 PM in the Frederickson Theatre in Roosevelt Hall.  Refreshments will be served.

The High Impact Learning Committee is interested in receiving additional proposals for high impact learning experiments that will be tested next year. If you have a promising but untested idea for providing students with a high impact learning experience, please consider submitting a proposal to Brenda Wiggins at bwiggins@emporia.edu by Friday, May 4.  We are looking for learning experiences that have not been tried before, the results of which could be shared campus-wide.  We are NOT able to consider proposals for projects such as faculty mentored undergraduate research where the value is already well established, nor can we honor equipment requests or projects that have previously received funding. Projects of around $5,000.00 are considered.

The application can be downloaded at the High Impact Learning Committee website.  Thank you for considering this request. ​

​Please join me in congratulating our ESU Assessment Champions for 2018.

On behalf of Emporia State University, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, and the Student Learning Assessment Council, congratulations are in order for the 2018 Assessment Champion Award winners. The Assessment Champion Award recognizes the outstanding efforts of Emporia State University faculty in perpetuating exceptional learning experiences for our students using assessment as a change agent. Nominations are made by the campus community and the Student Learning Assessment Council votes for the annual award winners. The award includes a "Recognition Letter, an Award Plaque and a $250 stipend."

Bios of Assessment Champions:

Michael Dennis, PhD – Associate Professor, Department of Communication and Theatre, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Since 2008, Dr. Dennis has served in many lead roles in assessing student learning for the department. He has designed scales to measure student learning from multiple courses related to our department goal "Develop research-based projects and communicate results orally and in writing." He has assessed student artifacts from multiple courses including SP 312, Theories of Communication where students demonstrated in writing that they are capable of describing and summarizing communication theories and their concepts, as well as of applying them to their own pragmatic realities. As students were required to read and discuss many articles portraying relevant primary research, he implemented a three week unit on Research Methods early in the semester to prepare them to understand and critique the articles. He sought to assess the extent to which this module was effective in addressing the department's Goal 2a. These assessment findings led to re-offering SP 580, Analysis of Communication Studies (Capstone course in research methods) which was reinstated as a core requirement for Communication Majors. Since 2013, Dr. Dennis has continuously engaged in assessment practices that have informed curriculum changes and improvement in student learning in capstone courses. In addition, he has also assessed student learning performances in general education courses SP101-Public Speaking, while utilizing the Association of American Colleges and Universities' Oral Communication Value Rubric aligned with KBOR core outcomes. Conclusively, the assessment efforts of Dr. Dennis have improved the department's curriculum and the student learning experience, he is worthy of being named an Assessment Champion!

Katherine "Kat" O'Meara, PhD – Assistant Professor/Director of Composition, English, Modern Languages and Journalism, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Dr. O'Meara has excelled in implementing assessment best practices for the Composition program. Since her hiring in the fall of 2017, she has redefined the rubrics used in assessing student success in written communication and has aligned these rubrics with the American Association of College and University's Value Rubrics for Written Communication and Critical Thinking. She has led the Composition Committee's work in directing program improvement using assessment data from multiple years of assessment practices. These practices include multiple reviewer scoring of individual student artifacts and portfolio analyses. Dr. O'Meara also served as a member of the AY2017 General Education Assessment Team. She has made immediate contributions to the university-wide assessment of our general education program. Her research is directed toward understanding how courses in other disciplines contribute to instruction in writing and mastery of writing skills and is informing her efforts to impact writing within the disciplines and across the curriculum at ESU. As Composition program director, she is the primary person coordinating the assessment of Composition I and II courses.

Phil Kelly, PhD - Professor and John Barnett, PhD Associate Professor - Department of Social Sciences, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Just a few years ago, political science assessment was still using an outdated multiple-choice test not well-aligned with the program's learning objectives. Today, the assessment of the program has both increased and improved immensely. Dr. Barnett has worked closely with Dr. Kelly and chair Dr. Michael Smith to completely redesign assessment practices for the Political Science program. Starting in 2016, Drs. Barnett and Kelly adopted a new rubric aligned with learning outcomes and learning objectives from the revised curriculum map. They have integrated capstone experiences into two upper-division political science courses (PO 500 and PO 501). Most remarkably, in 2017, Drs. Kelly and Barnett each separately evaluated each student's political science capstone paper, thus producing a dataset for evaluation in which interrater reliability was measured. In addition, Drs. Barnett and Kelly contributed to the adoption of policies (multiple drafts and standardized language) to addresses weaknesses in student writing and composition identified by assessments. These efforts resulted in AY2017 student learning outcomes for writing and composition skills showing remarkable gains as compared to AY2016 results.

Christopher Stone, PhD - Assistant Professor and Associate Chair - School of Business

Dr. Stone has served as the Chair for the Council on General Education during AY2017-2018. His leadership has included collaborating with the Director of General Education and General Education faculty in perpetuating university-wide assessment efforts for the General Education Program. In October 2018, he attended the Higher Learning Commission's General Education Assessment Workshop which focused exclusively on assisting ESU as it navigates change strategies to improve the overall assessment practices of the general education program. His leadership in general education assessment will include input in designing and implementing future assessment plans. Dr. Stone is also integrally involved in assessment for the School of Business in his role as Associate Chair as he collaborates with his colleagues in ensuring that the School of Business remains accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).  

Gary Wyatt, PhD - Associate Provost, Dean of the Honors College, and Professor of Sociology, Anthropology, and Crime and Delinquency Studies

            Dr. Wyatt, has provided leadership in ensuring that the university has planned and implemented assessment strategies aimed toward quality student learning experiences. Formerly as the Director of General Education, Dr. Wyatt first led the charge for implementing an assessment plan for the General Education Program. These efforts served the institution well, as it embraced the changing climate of assessment and accountability. As the first Dean of the Honors College, he led groundbreaking efforts to embed assessment practices into every operational component of the Honors program including the assessment of student learning outcomes in Honors courses. He also leads assessment efforts for faculty driven leadership and student engagement in learning the Kansas Leadership Center's principles and competencies. Dr. Wyatt's attention to detail and inclusive assessment efforts have led to our students' engaging in unique high-impact learning experiences dedicated to learning civic leadership competencies in perpetuation of the university's mission of preparing students for lifelong learning, rewarding careers, and adaptive leadership, and for its' vision of changing lives for the common good!

​Students, it is that time of year again when "scammers" or dishonest inidividuals are frequently attempting to post part-time and full-time jobs that are NOT legitimate. Please read all jobs very carefully before following up on these postings. Many of these scammers will use real company names and addresses to post jobs, then list the scammer as the contact person.  The latest scam going around is one that asks respondents to purchase thousands of dollars of iTunes cards at Walmart using their own funds.  Also, if a posting (or person) asks you to deposit money into a bank account as a job, invest your own money first, or "deliver packages", be aware that this is not a typical job responsibility.  Never, never accept jobs that require you to "invest" your own money or involve your own financial resources.  If you have any questions about job postings and if they are real or not, please contact Career Services.  Also, if you want to tell us about any scamming employers, please contact Career Services at 620-341-5407 or career@emporia.edu​.  Always use your best judgement or reach out to other professionals and ask them before responding to uncertain job postings.

We all had them: the teachers we couldn't do enough for because they engaged our minds, challenged us, peaked our curiosity about things we never thought we would care about; and the teachers who we know we learned subject material in spite of how they managed their classroom, addressed the topic, failed to recognize the students in front of them were humans, not robots.

Do you know a high school student who is experiencing either end of this spectrum? Why don't you see if s/he would be interested in learning what it takes to be a teacher. Applications for the Kansas Future Teacher Academy are due April 20 from https://www.emporia.edu/teach/kfta/​​.
