National Library Week

This week is National Library Week. The staff of McDonald Library would like to invite the University community to join them in celebrating the importance of libraries by participating in a variety of activities throughout the week, such as the Edible Books competition. View a list of the week's activities.

Time sheet deadline

Due to the Easter holiday, support staff time sheets for pay date April 25 are due by noon on Thursday, April 17, and need to be approved by end of the day. The payroll office cannot guarantee pay if time sheets are not completed and approved by the deadline. It may be helpful for individuals to contact their supervisor to let them know the timesheet has been submitted for their approval. For more information, call the payroll office at 3436.

HeartBleed computer bug

Last week, the “HeartBleed” computer bug received national attention. Information Technology has posted a brief for Xavier as well as your own personal considerations.

Hours of operation

View the Easter Break hours of operation for all food services, the ALL Card Center, copying services, parking, mailing services, U.S. Bank, Xavier Document Center and the Xavier Bookstore. For additional information, please call the Office of Auxiliary Services at 4281.

System maintenance

Information Technologies is performing required system upgrades to the business systems known as Internet Native Banner, Self Service Banner, Degree Works, Banner Workflow and e-Procurement (SciQuest). The upgrade runs from 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 17, until noon on Monday, April 21. These systems are unavailable during this time. Access to all other electronic services including email and the Internet remain available.

Staff advisory committee

The staff advisory committee reminds staff members of the Nexus site that anonymously collects feedback or questions through the blue “Submit a Suggestion” box. With on-going staff input, the SAC members are better able to represent the needs and wishes of all University staff to upper administration.

Spiritual retreat

Faculty are invited to attend the AJCU's 2014 Magis Silent Retreat, June 16-22, near Loyola University-Chicago. Magis provides an opportunity for faculty at Jesuit universities to integrate Ignatian spirituality into their professional and personal lives. If interested in attending, contact Debra Mooney at mooney@xavier.edu.
