We are looking for individuals and organizations to serve as Hornet Helpers for students moving into the Residence Halls on August 17th & 18th.  This is a great opportunity to meet and greet first-year students as they make ESU their new home and assist upperclassmen with their return to our on-campus community. As a Hornet Helper, you will welcome residents, assist with moving items into rooms, and answer questions residents may have about life in Hornet Nation. 

We also need Team Leaders to serve as a "go to" for Hornet Helpers and ensure that shifts run efficiently and effectively.

With the help of our amazing volunteers, approximately 900 residents will move into the Halls over two days. Thus, there will be plenty of residents for Hornet Helpers to meet and welcome throughout each of the five move-in shifts.  

We need Hornet Helpers and Team Leaders for the following shifts:

Morse Hall Move-In:

o   Two shifts on Thursday, August 17th

·         7:45 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.

·         9:15 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

·         9:15 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

·         11:15 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

If you would like to serve as a Hornet Helper or Team Leader, please contact Keri Cerda at kcerda@emporia.edu.  We encourage individuals to sign up for multiple shifts and look forward to our registered student organizations assisting with Move-In on both days.  Those who assist with Move-In will receive a uniquely designed t-shirt for their efforts.

May Massee was one of America's most influential children's book editors, with a career that spanned from the 1920s to the early 1960s. She published many classic stories, such as Make Way for Ducklings, the Madeline series, and The Story of Ferdinand, and created the "junior books" divisions at both Doubleday and Viking Press. The collection, which arrived at ESU in June 1972, includes over 3,000 pieces of original artwork, as well as manuscripts and correspondence with authors and illustrators.

Schedule of events for May Massee Week:

Due to reductions in personnel we are looking at ways to stretch our staff to continue to offer the services we currently provide.  We will be implementing a reduction of frequency we will be picking up trash in private offices.  Currently we pick up every day.  We will begin picking up trash in private offices once a week when this is implemented.  We will continue to pick up trash in all public spaces (classrooms, department main office, meeting rooms, labs, etc.) every day.    If you need trash picked up from your private office at other times simply put it outside your door and it will be picked up as we pass through.  Or take it to a trash can that is serviced every day.  We regret that we cannot continue to provide daily service to private offices.  We hope this will have a minimal impact on the overall service we provide but will keep our attention to the public spaces that require daily service.

Building Services supervisors and management will be contacting each department to discuss this change.  Implementation will start no sooner than June 1, 2017.  We appreciate your understanding on how we address personnel reductions while maintaining expectations.

Thank you.

Do you need the OnBase Unity Client?  If you only click the link in your email to get to OnBase, then you don't need the Unity client – the email links open the Web Client.  But if you work often in OnBase here are some advantages to the Unity Client:

·It does not time you out when creating a long document.

·Self-updating when there is a new version.

·Power users can have multiple windows open at once (Document Retrieval, Upload, Workflow...).

·Home ribbon similar to Office products

·Sorting and personalization options

·Most people who import and scan don't need the "thick" client any more.

 

Installation instructions and FACs are at the bottom of www.emporia.edu/onbase.  There is also a fabulous video for new and seasoned users of Unity Client here.  And more useful documentation on our documentation tab. ​

Note:  Mac users can use OnBase Unity Client via SkyLab.  For now, Form Cs must be submitted with the Web Client.

Your Emporia State baseball team is in a good position to host the NCAA Division II Central Regional Tournament May 18-22.  The Hornet Athletic Department is seeking volunteers that are interesting in helping out with various aspects of running the tournament – ushers, foul ball chasers, gate watchers, etc.  Since this is an NCAA event, there will be a charge for admittance to everyone, including ESU students, however workers will be given a pass to the games.

​The Flint Hills Community Health Center has confirmed that an ESU student has a probable case of mumps. Emporia State's Student Wellness Center is working closely with FHCHC's public health nurse, who will directly notify anyone who may have been in close contact with the student.

It is important for the campus and surrounding community to be aware of the symptoms of mumps and how the disease is spread.

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, mumps is an acute viral infection transmitted through coughing, sneezing or talking; sharing cups or utensils; or touching objects or surfaces freshly soiled by infected respiratory secretions. Symptoms start with body aches, loss of appetite, fatigue, headache and low-grade fever — eventually progressing to swollen salivary glands on one or both sides. Symptoms usually appear 16-18 days after being infected, and mumps can be spread to others any time from two days before to five days after the onset of swelling.

For more information on mumps, visit www.cdc.gov/mumps.

Immunization for mumps is part of the Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccine. As you prepare to leave campus and return home, we encourage you to check your immunization status and get up to date as needed.

Students with symptoms — even if they have received both doses of MMR vaccine — should call the Student Wellness Center at 620-341-5222 and ask to speak with a nurse before they visit the center. ​

ESU wants to hear from you! Please take the 20-minute, online, confidential Tomorrow’s Teachers Speak Upsurvey this week! We are participating in this national research project being led by Project Tomorrow and look forward to what you have to say about what you are leaning and what you are expecting from your future teaching career.

Each year, more principals say they are looking for new teachers to start with a particular set of technology skills. Project Tomorrow wants to know how the next generation of teachers is preparing for that challenge and what YOU are expecting when it comes to technology in your future classroom. (Here’s what last year’s first year teachers told Speak Up: http://bit.ly/1stYearTs )​

The national data findings will be used to inform national policies on technology use in education, teacher preparation programs and K-12 school and district leaders on the aspirations of tomorrow’s teachers. And, we want to use your feedback to inform the work we are doing on campus.

 

Please Speak Up today! Get started at this linkhttp://www.speakup4schools.org/TomorrowsTeachers/

​We have received complaints about temperatures inside buildings rising to the 75- to 80-degree range.

Our normal policy has been to turn on air conditioning in buildings after three straight days of 85 degrees or higher is forecast. Although we have not yet reached that point, we are working to prepare all the AC units on campus and should have the entire campus up and running by next week.

Please realize that commercial heating and cooling units are unlike what you might be used to at home. Residential units often can be switched back and forth from day to day, helpful during spring in Kansas where days with high temperatures in the upper 70s can be followed by days with highs only in the 50s and lows below freezing.​

There is a good possibility that some cooler days are still in store for us and we will not be able to turn heat back on. If cooler weather comes, the academic buildings may seem colder than people would like. But we know it's easy to put on an extra layer to stay warm.

I’m excited to share with you a new partnership between Emporia State University and the ESU Foundation that will bring added responsibilities for Tyler Curtis, executive director of Alumni Relations for the university.

As assistant vice president for university advancement and foundation assistant vice president for outreach and engagement, Tyler will maintain responsibilities with Alumni Relations with an added focus on the new Corporate Engagement Strategic Plan he developed with June Coleman, director of ESU Career Services.​

Tyler’s new role, which begins April 23, is part of a reorganization effort by the Foundation and University Advancement to deliver services to be even more effective.

We are excited about the new Corporate Engagement Strategic Plan because it puts Emporia State University in position for stronger partnerships with major employers in the state and region. It allows for both our institution and our business partners to focus on outcomes. Our mutually beneficial goal is to have highly educated individuals join the workforce to move our state forward.
