Call or Order

The meeting was called to order at 8:30 a.m. by Angie Brown

Guest Speaker - Mike Arnos
Angie had shared a PDF flyer from the Rec Center prior to the presentation.

Mike Arnos introduced himself and talked about his role at the Rec Center. One of his jobs/goals is to connect more faculty/staff/departments with the Rec Center. He plans to get out to different departments/offices to take a deep dive into understanding what faculty and staff want/need. He is also a member of the Health and Well-Being Task Force.

Major Take-Aways

  • Faculty and staff receive a 50% membership discount. This discount is subsidized by Human Resources.
  • The Rec Center also uses 3 smaller spaces for events/offerings:
    • Clawson Hall
    • Martin Dining Hall (basement)
    • Chestnut Fields (old Talawanda High School parking lot)

Mike also explained that Phillips Hall is no longer being used because it is home to an academic department that needs the space.

Wednesday Lunch Bunch - The Rec Center is offering free access to the Rec Center every Wednesday 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. The staff is offering facility orientations and the opportunity to play basketball, pickleball, swim, exercise, and use the exercise track.

Additionally, they offer the Caravan Wellness app (free) to faculty and staff. Please be sure to register with your Miami University address. This app provides access to all Caravan Video Classes and the Monthly Exclusive Miami University Wellness Program.

*Mike sent Angie the link after the meeting.

At this time there is nothing for Regionals, but they are discussing possibilities.

Communications from the President on eeo refresher for duty to report training.

Dawn gave a quick reminder that by the end of September, goals need to be completed for Performance Evaluations. If your supervisor director has not reached out to you, please discuss this with them.

Since the beginning of the academic year, Interim Provost Liz Mullenix has encouraged managers and supervisors to work with employees regarding flex schedules or remote work. HR plans to see how this goes and make necessary changes in the future.

Dawn provided information and a link to the Learning Library. The Learning Library is another module available to use for different professional pieces of training; some are online and some are F2F. The easiest way to view the calendar is by clicking the calendar icon on the right to view it in monthly format. The registration information is at the bottom of each event/session.

BannerWeb Update - We have been using version 8 for quite a few years but it will be sunset soon because Elucian will stop supporting BannerWeb 8 within a year.
