For more information, please read, “Guidelines for Employees Named as Mandatory Reporters.

Monday, Feb. 25–Fri., March 1 Houchens Building Offices
Each office in the Houchens Building will be battling to see which collects the most pennies. The battle begins with silver and dollars as they counteract the pennies. Visitors and guests of the building are also welcome to join in. The office collecting the most pennies by the end of the week will win a pizza party.
Additional Information: Participating offices include Undergraduate Admissions, Graduate School and Interdisciplinary Studies, Bursar, Student Financial Aid, Registrar, Transfer Services and Veteran’s Affairs, Career Planning Center, Cardinal Card, Cardinal Newspaper and Metropolitan College.

6.) Blackboard courses from spring 2012 to be archived and deleted
Blackboard courses from spring 2012 will be archived and then deleted after Friday, March 22. This is a semi-annual process by the Delphi Center that frees up server space for new courses. If you have a specific need to keep a spring 2012 course available beyond March 22, please submit a request by that date. Additional information on this process can be found in the Blackboard News module on the login page.
