Due to the threat of inclement weather this weekend the madrigal dinner at the Emporia Country Club has been postponed until Saturday, February 23rd at 7:30pm.  Please consider joining us then for a fun night, great food, and a wonderful concert.  Contact Dr. Ward for more details, rward7@emporia.edu.

​The IT Help Desk will be closed this Saturday and Sunday, January 19 & 20, to observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  On Monday, January 21st, we will be available from 5:00-9:00 pm, and resume regular hours Tuesday, January 22, at 8:00 am.  ​

Information Technology1/18/2019 1:16 PM
  

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for the next several days is for rain/freezing rain turning into snow during Friday night into the day on Saturday.  There will be crews out to pre-treat on Friday to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work through the night and early morning to clear and treat roads, parking lots and walks.  FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.  Coming into work on Saturday and Sunday will be treacherous until the temperatures rise above freezing.    We should be in good shape for Martin Luther Day activities on Monday but please take care.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

 

Thank you.

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for the next several days is for rain/freezing rain during Wednesday night into the day on Thursday.  Friday and Saturday will again have a chance for rain and/or snow starting around closing time on Friday. There will be crews out to pre-treat on Wednesday to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work through the night and early morning to clear and treat roads, parking lots and walks.  FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.  Coming into work on Thursday will be treacherous until the temperatures rise above freezing.  So take care when you arrive.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

​Community Hornets is rolling out a new initiative for this semester.  The Community Impact Challenge (CIC), aims to inspire students to make an impact for the common good in our local community. Specifically, CIC invites ESU students to work collaboratively in teams of 3-5 to identify creative and meaningful solutions to challenges facing the campus and/or greater Emporia community.

Teams of students will submit proposals and finalists will be invited to present their proposals in front of a panel of judges.  Judges include a member of the faculty and staff and student body, community member an alumnus.  The 2019 CIC winning team will be awarded a $250 grant to carry out its proposed solution. The solution must be carried out by May 2019.  The CIC represents an opportunity for students to learn more about the local community, network with other students as well as community members, and enhance their skills (e.g., critical and creative thinking, problem solving, teamwork, public speaking, and adaptive leadership). ​

Please encourage your students to participate in the first annual Community Impact Challenge.  If you are interested in receiving a proposal packet with rules, timeline of events, you may send us an email a chornets@emporia.edu.   ​

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for the next several days is for rain/freezing rain during Thursday night into the day on Friday and Saturday with a chance for rain and/or snow on Saturday. There will be crews out to pre-treat on Thursday to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work through the night and early morning to clear and treat roads, parking lots and walks.  FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.  Coming into work on Friday may be a treacherous until the temperatures rise above freezing.  So take care when you arrive.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

Topeka - With flags already lowered in honor of the life of former President George H.W. Bush, Governor Jeff Colyer reminds Kansans to also recognize the position of the flag at half-staff on Friday, December 7, 2018 as a recognition of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. 

​"This is a day to honor and remember those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor," said Governor Colyer. "We thank all of those who have served our nation and continue to serve to protect our nation."

Flags should continue to remain lowered from sunrise to sunset December 7th for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and remain at half-staff at sunrise December 8, 2018 until sunset December 30, 2018 continuing the previous order for the passing of former president George H.W. Bush.

The Symantec email filter will be brought online while the current Barracuda filter is still running.  Some users may get two email notifications for a few days while both systems are filtering.  This is to ensure that no mail is lost while we enable the new system.  Once it is fully functioning, the old Barracuda system will be turned off.  Watch your email and Hornet Announcements for the ‘Go-Live’ date and for further information.

Use of EOF monies is limited to the following purposes:

a.)  Academic scholarships and fellowships for both graduate and undergraduate students.

b.)   Need-based grants, including awards to students with special expenses such as child care, or groups of students historically under-represented in higher education.

c.)  Salaries or grants for students participating in public and community service programs.

d.)  Monies to provide salaries for students employed in service programs such as tutoring, day care, and peer counseling and to provide services to students.

University departments are encouraged to apply for EOF monies under sections C and D as explained above.

There will be crews out when these events start to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work through the night and early morning to clear and treat roads, parking lots and walks.  FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.  Coming into work on Monday may be a treacherous until we can finish the clearing.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

One great way to keep your computer (or other device) safe is to have a unique password/passphrase in place! ​

Unique account, unique password: Having separate passwords for every account helps to thwart cybercriminals. At a minimum, separate your work and personal accounts and make sure that your critical accounts have the strongest passwords. Also, a strong password is a sentence that is at least 12 characters long. Focus on positive sentences or phrases that you like to think about and are easy to remember (for example, “I love golden retrievers!”). On many sites, you can even use spaces!

IT is pleased to announce that we will soon be implementing new email filtering software.  An addition to our current Symantec Endpoint Protection, the new filter is more adaptable to ever-changing phishing attempts and email scams.

 

The Symantec email filter will be brought online while the current Barracuda filter is still running.  Some users may get two email notifications for a few days while both systems are filtering.  This is to ensure that no mail is lost while we enable the new system.  Once it is fully functioning, the old Barracuda system will be turned off.  More information will be available as we draw nearer to our go-live date in mid-December.​

We are having a meeting to talk about the study abroad to Colombia this Monday, Nov. 19th from 5 to 7p.m. in Plumb Hall 308. 


This is a great chance do some exploring while gaining valuable (and marketable!) skills and experience.  The experience of international travel and Spanish language skills (much easier to pick up while immersed in the language and culture) can be valuable to anyone in many areas of our lives, whatever your personal and professional goals may be.

Please check out the website we've created to give you and your family easy access to all the trip info.  On this website you can find details about the payment plan, resources for financial aid, bios about our Spanish professors and trip chaperones, and some links to help you learn about and get excited to explore Bogota. There is also general information about our department, the degrees we offer, and how to add a Spanish minor to your academic plan (only 13 hours and this trip would knock out 6 of them!).

Here's the link: 


This will be a come and go meeting and a chance to speak and ask questions to Dr. Spaulding and Dr. Robinson, as well as Mark Daly and Chie Zenno from the Office of International Studies and Darcy Johnson from Financial Aid.

Do you need assistance with a problem in your organization that can be solved with training and instruction? Be a client for one of our students! Problem Statements are due January 4, 2019 and students will begin working on them soon after. Projects will be completed and presented by early May.​

For more information, go to https://www.emporia.edu/teach/idt/masters/call-for-clients.html or contact Zeni at jcolorad@emporia.edu for specific proposal examples.

​A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  A notification will be sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  No notification will be given if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for this Thursday is from a trace to 3" of snow with the possibility of freezing drizzle or rain.  Hopefully the ground temperature will help keep the sidewalks, parking lots and streets clear. If not there will be crews out when this snow event starts to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Other crews will be coming in at 4:00 a.m. on Friday to start the clearing and treatment of roads, parking lots and walks.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331). Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work can be viewed at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, extreme care should be taken due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after the event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or make arrangements with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

 

Thank you.
