Human Resources Update - Dawn Fahner, Associate Vice President of Human Resources

  • Annual performance evaluations have been opened up for staff to complete their self-assessment in Page Up. Work with supervisors and managers to get this year’s evaluation completed by June 30, 2023. For new employees, or employees who have moved depts, there is a Formstack version until the employee is in Page Up correctly.
  • No word in regard to the annual increment. Communication will come out later this year due to being a bi-annual budget year. The state has until June 30th to pass our budget bill. Communication from HR will come out end of June, or even July this year.
  • HR and Finance have kicked off their portion of the Workday implementation process. Right now, they are in the “foundation build” step. The live date for HR and Finance is July 1, 2024, so that other areas can roll out next.
  • Dawn spoke about the RAVE Guardian App as promoted by MUPD for on-campus safety and communications. Please share with depts and students. Dawn also reminded everyone to use MUPD as a resource for active threat training.

Subcommittee Updates

  • Benefits - Jennifer Fox -No updates to report.
  • Campus Planning - Bonnie Crabtree – Current projects are on track due to the recent good weather. New projects are Millett Hall and library renovations. No timeline yet for the library project. Parking is a major discussion. The geothermal well project will be taking close to 600 long-term residential and commuter spaces from students. The area that is used for RV parking will be taken starting this fall. Not sure if it will ever be a parking area again or not. A new parking lot will be created at Chestnut Field House with 300 spaces to help with the lack of parking at Millett. The university "has no appetite" to reduce the long-term parking of resident hall occupants. The parking spaces for students are now a marketing tool for recruitment.
