Union Hall renovation continues through summer

The completed addition to Union Hall houses new classrooms and labs.
Work is now continuing on the first and basement levels.

The multi-year renovation of Union Hall is about to enter the final phases of work. Built in the mid-1970s, the $17 million dollar project helps bring the structure into the 21st century while providing state-of-the-art technology for classrooms.

Construction crews have now completed the third floor and have transitioned to the first floor and lower level.  This phase includes renovating the Food Court, which is closed for the summer. Building access to the first floor will be limited during construction.

The Project Management team has stressed to contractors that all disruptive work (noise, fumes, etc.) should be done during nighttime hours to minimize impact to classes and offices.  

The estimated construction schedule includes: work on the Food Court work to continue through August 1; the first floor and lower level construction to continue through August 8; and Union Hall Food Court roof replacement to begin this month.

A new booklet is available to help the parents and guardians of new students transition into college life and independence, while still offering them the support and advice needed to be successful. The booklet, which can be viewed online, outlines the various resources Columbus State students can find on campus to help them take charge of their own education and future career.   

NISOD offers webinar on adjunct support

Can two full-time and two adjunct faculty members, one dean, and an e-learning director create an online course to promote professional development for new adjunct faculty? A webinar offered by the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) will answer this question Thursday, June 26, at 2:00 p.m.  The webinar will highlight the strategies administrators at Everett Community College, Wash., used to collaborate with faculty members and encourage them to use online resources to improve student engagement and retention. To read more about this webinar and register, please visit the NISOD resources page.

Final reminder for Health Rewards!      
logoAll employees and their spouses or domestic partners covered under either of the United Health Care (UHC) plans through Columbus State must reach eight (8) points in the Health Rewards program by Monday, June 30, to maintain the 20 percent payroll contribution for the 2015 year of coverage. All points accumulated are from activities completed between July 1, 2013, and June 30, 2014.

If you choose not to participate in Health Rewards, or do not reach the eight-point minimum, your contribution toward your health coverage will go to 30 percent in 2015.

You can read more about the Health Rewards program online.  A tutorial is also available online.

Your points for activities completed can take up to eight weeks to show up in the MYUHC system, but if you have completed the activity on or before June 30, it will qualify. Dental points during this time period (by June 30) will be also credited, but have not yet been uploaded.

If you have additional questions, contact Nichole Bowman-Glover, wellness coordinator, at ext. 3989.
