Last year, more than 11,000 of your fellow commonwealth employees donated $2.8 million to help people in need through the State Employee Combined Appeal (SECA).   The 2013 SECA campaign kicked off on September 9 and ends on November 1.  We encourage you to take this year's campaign theme to heart and "Walk in the Shoes" of someone less fortunate.  This year, donors have the opportunity to emerge as standout supporters of SECA by joining one of the two leadership giving levels - Governor's Circle or Gold.  Both levels recognize those employees who donate the equivalent of one hour or a half hour of their pay each month.  You can elect to have your donation easily deducted from your bi-weekly pay by using ESS or a paper pledge form.  You can also dedicate your donation to one or more charities of your choice by locating them in the SECA resource guide.  For more information, contact our SECA Agency Coordinator Bob Watrous at ext. 31396 or   

The University Room Scheduler Program (EMS)
will be going off-line for maintenance repairs and upgrades beginning at 8:00am on Thursday (9/26/13).  The Room Scheduler Program should be back on-line and available sometime in the afternoon on 9/26.  No one will have access to the EMS program during this scheduled shutdown.  I apologize for the late notice and any inconvenience that this may cause.  If you have any questions feel free to contact our office at x31359.  Thank you.  

There will be a meeting of the KU Geographical Society
on Thursday morning, September 19, 2013 at 11 a.m. in GC 01.  Stop in to find out the interesting plans for the semester!  Struggling in your Geography or GIS classes?  Stop by - we can help!  Check us out on FaceBook:  Looking forward to seeing you there - all are welcome!
