Tuition remission and scholarship update

In a Jan. 21 memo to campus, Jim Tressel provides an update about tuition remission and scholarship opportunities for full-time employees. 


Part-time faculty logging hours worked

For the Spring 2014 semester, all part-time faculty teaching more than 4 credit hours will continue to report their total time worked in EmpCenter. However, all Hire/Rehire paperwork will not be processed prior to the first day of classes; therefore, not all part-time faculty will have access to EmpCenter on the first day of classes. Part-time faculty that are not able to access EmpCenter should record their hours manually until they are able to access EmpCenter. After they have access to EmpCenter, they will enter the hours into the system.

The form for manually tracking hours worked, as well as the tutorial for entering hours, are available on the EmpCenter Help web site. Please notify your part-time faculty as needed.

If employees need assistance using EmpCenter, they should contact EmpCenterhelp@uakron.edu or call the Support Center at ext. 6888.

All Personnel Action Forms (PAFs) received by Human Resources by the Jan. 24, 2014, deadline will be entered in the system no later than Feb. 5, 2014.


Our shared responsibility to report any form of harassment

The start of a new semester is a good time to remind everyone of our shared responsibility to make The University of Akron a great place to work for each and every employee and an extraordinary experience for each and every student.

We urge every faculty and staff member, and all students, to review our Sexual Harassment Policy (3359-11-13) and to be aware of the many forms of harassment that can create an intimidating or offensive environment, and, further, to be aware of our shared responsibility to report such unacceptable behavior.
