Campus Mass Email Policy Discussed

There has been a lot of discussion at AAC this year about the campus-wide mass email policy. There is a variety of channels used by people on campus to get messages out, including Inside News, mass emails and the Chompergram. Member concerns include the approval process and also what kind of access there is to different community groups (students, employees).

The committee has been working with Mike Richwalsky and the division of communication to discuss a new system. Testing is now underway of a new campus daily email, which is connected to the new MyAllegheny homepage that replaced the “inside” page a few months ago.

Busy semester

We’d like to apologize for not having posted minutes sooner than this.  It has been a busy semester for all of us, including AAC.

October’s minutes have now been posted on the minutes tab.  September and November should also be posted within a week.  We will also have the membership roster updated under the contact tab very very soon!

Please don’t assume that the lack of minutes corresponds with a lack of committee activity.  It’s quite the opposite!

How do you report your sick time?

AAC is reviewing the policies around how sick time is reported. The policies in the handbook regarding this issue are 500(C) and 900.4, and the committee finds a need for clarification. Reporting structures across campus seem to vary widely.
