Spacer In Brief


Meet first candidate for education dean

The first candidate for dean of the College of Education and Human Development will be on campus today (April 26). Three other candidates will follow in the coming weeks.

Dr. Rosalyn Templeton, executive dean of the College of Education and Human Services at Marshall University, will hold an open forum on “Advancing Educator Preparation and the Public School Relationship, and Advancing Education and Human Development” from 3-4:30 p.m. in 113 Olscamp Hall. (The session will be also video recorded and made available to the campus community.)

Additional features available in Employee Self-Service

Beginning today (April 26), BGSU employees will see additional payroll self-service features and some eBenefits elements available to them in Employee Self-Service in MyBGSU.

Employees currently use the View Paycheck self-service to view their payroll information. These new applications will provide added options for obtaining and recording payroll and benefits information.

Additional payroll features include self-service for direct deposit and W-4 tax information. New benefits-related features include the ability to view a summary of benefits and to record life events such as a marital-status change and a birth or adoption.  

A benefits enrollment link will also be available, but most employees will receive a “No Open Events” message when selecting this link. The fall 2010 benefits enrollment period will provide the first opportunity for all currently enrolled benefit holders to use this self-service feature.

Town hall meetings explain Campus Master Plan

The University community is invited to attend Campus Master Plan town hall sessions in 201 Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

Meetings will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday (April 27) and from 3-4:30 p.m. Wednesday (April 28).

Representatives from Capital Planning and Design and the Master Plan Consulting Team will explain the Master Plan and answer questions.

Record your Centennial service hours

BGSU has made a commitment to one million hours of service during its Centennial year. These hours can be performed on campus or off, in University-related venues or personal ones such as church, Girl Scouts or the humane society.

Key to knowing when we’ve reached this goal, and what types of service we are contributing, is recording the hours served on the Centennial Service Challenge Web site. Be sure to visit and log your hours.

They can be recorded anytime before next January, but it is helpful to add them regularly. Totals are updated each Monday.
