Inclement weather policy

car driving in blizzardWith winter weather upon us, it's time to review UW-Eau Claire's practices in the event severe weather strikes.

In accordance with Ch. 36, Wisconsin Statutes, and delegated authority from the Board of Regents and UW System president, a chancellor has the authority to cancel classes, close an institution to the public, or completely close an institution to the public and employees.

In general, when inclement weather threatens operations at UW-Eau Claire, the university will remain open to the extent possible. If necessary, the chancellor may close the university to the public or cancel classes, but state employees will be expected to report to work.

Employees who accrue vacation, compensatory time or personal holidays may use the accrued leave if they are unable to make it to work, or if they are excused from work because emergency weather conditions make it unsafe remain at work. Per the Fair Labor Standards Act, employees also may make up lost time within the same week of the weather emergency.

If a severe weather situation occurs, local media will be made aware of any cancellations/closings, but their announcements are advisory only.

Should a decision be made to cancel classes, close the university to the public or completely close the university, official information will be transmitted via UW-Eau Claire's emergency notification system, which includes announcements on the university homepage, Facebook page and Twitter feed, among other notifications.

D2L outage planned for Jan. 2-3

A D2L outage is planned from 10 p.m. Jan. 2 through 10 a.m. Jan. 3, 2013, to migrate D2L to a new storage solution. D2L will be completely unavailable during the outage.

New signs designate campus smoking areas

The installation of signs identifying designated smoking areas on campus has been completed. A new UW-Eau Claire smoking policy went into effect May 1.

The policy prohibits smoking on campus except in designated areas and on city-owned streets that run through campus. View the policy and map of designated smoking areas.

The policy was created by a committee of UW-Eau Claire staff and students appointed by then Chancellor Brian Levin-Stankevich. In 2010 Levin-Stankevich received two different proposals regarding campus smoking restrictions: one from the University Senate (composed of representatives from the university's faculty and academic staff) calling for a
tobacco-free campus, and one from the Student Senate objecting to the tobacco ban but recommending that smoking be shifted away from areas heavily traveled by non-smokers, building entrances and air intakes. The chancellor's committee was charged with creating a policy that, as proposed by the Student Senate, would establish fewer smoking areas on campus.

Temporary process for accessing Foundation fund information and alumni data

In April, the UW-Eau Claire Foundation and Alumni Relations office converted from the Bridge legacy system to The Raiser’s Edge and Financial Edge, which are not connected to PeopleSoft. (Campus Solutions did not have the functionality needed by the Foundation and alumni office, so a different system was acquired).

The Foundation and alumni office have been working to provide the customer service the university community expects in the areas of access to Foundation fund accounting information and alumni data. It is not yet known when that functionality will be available. In the meantime, please send email to Robin Leary at learyrj@uwec.edu for that information. She will provide a report showing current Foundation account balances and transaction history. Those who attempt to access Foundation fund account information from any other source will NOT be viewing current information. This is especially important for those who would not want to use old data to determine spending needs and/or scholarship award information.

To ensure a user-friendly process for alumni list requests, please give the Foundation and alumni office staff as much lead time as possible. It is not possible to guarantee an immediate response time on requests for information. The Foundation and alumni office staff are striving to provide accurate and timely information and thank the university faculty and staff for their understanding and patience.

LTS introduces new MyBlugold system


UW-Eau Claire's MyBlugold system has a new look and feel, as well as expanded capabilities for UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff.

The new system, which launched today, was developed during summer 2012 using Microsoft SharePoint 2010. Users can find the link to the system in the Current Students and Faculty/Staff dropdowns in the horizontal navigation bar on all UW-Eau Claire top-level Web pages.

The old MyBlugold system will be kept available for comparison purposes until Sept. 14.

MyBlugold is an intranet and digital workplace for UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students. The new system (1) replaces the original series of reference pages that linked to internal services; (2) serves as an intranet where campus departments and offices can create their own sites to publish internal information for students and staff; and (3) provides a digital workplace where documents can be stored and cross-functional teams can participate in projects.

"Sharepoint is a good fit for this campus environment,” said Craig Mey, UW-Eau Claire's director of Learning and Technology Services. "The new MyBlugold will help foster inclusive collaboration among our students, faculty and staff. The new system has many nice features that allow people with busy schedules to flexibly participate."

New Davies to open doors July 30

UW-Eau Claire's new W.R. Davies Student Center will open for business at 8 a.m. Monday, July 30. Building hours for the rest of the summer will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and hours during the academic year will be from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday.

"We are grateful to all the students who have made this building possible," said Dr. Beth Hellwig, vice chancellor for student affairs. "In addition, thanks go out to everyone who has contributed to planning, designing and constructing the new W.R. Davies Student Center — our new campus living room."

Interim Chancellor Gilles Bousquet and student body president Cory Fish will enter the new student center at 8 a.m. July 30 as the building's first official visitors. Bousquet and Fish will be on hand near the Service Center to make some initial comments and greet students, faculty and staff. They will proceed to The Cabin, where they will be the first customers to order coffee.

Access to the building should be via the southeast entrance, which faces the Phillips parking lot, or the northwest entrance, which can be reached via a north-south sidewalk that runs to the west of the Old Library and McIntyre Library

The facility's opening will be a "soft opening," meaning some services will still be limited and finishing work will continue throughout the building.

The Service Center, University Bookstore and University Centers offices will be open July 30. Limited food service consisting of "grab and go" fare, including coffee and other beverages, sandwiches and salads, will be available in The Cabin. Additional food venues will open over the next few weeks, the U.S. Bank office is expected to open Aug. 7, and U.S. Bank and RCU ATMs will be available soon.

Student-led tours of the new building will be offered July 30-Aug. 3. Tours, which will last from one hour to 90 minutes, will depart from the Service Center at 10 a.m., noon, 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. daily. No advance reservations are needed. Individuals planning to take a tour are asked to wear closed-toe shoes for safety reasons, as final construction work continues in some parts of the building.

"We thank people for their patience during our soft opening," said Charles Farrell, director of University Centers. "People will see some finishing touches and other work still going on and furniture arriving in some areas in the coming weeks. Our plan is to be up and fully ready to go by residence hall move-in day on August 30."

A student celebration of the building's opening is being planned for the start of the fall semester, and an official ribbon-cutting and grand opening event will be held during UW-Eau Claire's homecoming weekend in late September.
