Hosting a visiting faculty in August

submitted by underhil@augsburg.edu

The visiting instructor for the River Semester this year will be arriving from Sweden on Aug. 1 and could use a place to stay close to campus as he prepares for the upcoming expedition and semester. I have places for him to stay for most of the time between Aug. 1 and the Aug. 23 departure date but have some days during the week when he needs a host. Anyone with a spare bed near campus who would be up for hosting Peter Carlson, please let me know.

Farewell to David Hamilton

submitted by mulvihil@augsburg.edu

Please join me in congratulating David Hamilton, CGEE’s Director of Operations and Global Inclusion Initiatives, who will be leaving Augsburg on August 3 to become the executive director of the Cedar Cultural Center. This is an exciting opportunity for David, one that will use his wide-ranging skills in organizing, strategic planning, and financial management. It is also an exciting opportunity for the Cedar Cultural Center, for David comes with an extraordinary talent for building teams and articulating mission.

We are very happy for David as a colleague and a friend, but we will miss him greatly. He has helped to lead CGEE through numerous transitions, spearheaded innovation, and been a constant source of wisdom and institutional memory. He has also been key in advancing the diversity and inclusion commitments that define CGEE’s values.

A transition plan is taking shape and will be shared with CGEE stakeholders soon. I am consulting with CGEE staff and management team members to ensure that the support David has provided will continue and to assess new possibilities for organizational growth.

-Pat Mulvihill

Student Employment Information

submitted by gade@augsburg.edu

Fall semester is fast approaching and the first day of student employment for the academic year is September 9th! If you are planning on having students working during the academic year, please be sure to review the information below regarding student positions.

Steps to follow when hiring a student worker for 2018-2019
1) Students returning into a position they held previously will only need a Student Employment Hire Form submitted through Hirezon/Interview Exchange.
2) Students working this summer, their job will end effective 9/7/2018 because they need to move to a school year position. You will need to complete the Student Employment Hire Form for these students too.
3) Any new position will need to be posted through Human Resources to the internal student jobs board. Student Requisitions can be submitted though Hirezon/Interview Exchange. Once it’s submitted, we will post the position online. Hiring managers will be able to view applications in real time through the system.
4) If you have a posting from last year still open, those jobs will be closed by August 1st.
5) When you’ve selected a student to hire, complete the Student Employment Hire Form through Hirezon/Interview Exchange. Students, who have never worked on campus before, will need to fill out new hire paperwork, including a background check. HR sends out the new hire paperwork and background check to the student once the Student Employment Hire Form is submitted. Students cannot start work prior to that paperwork completion and they are authorized to work.

Instructions for navigating Hirezon/Interview Exchange can be found at this link: http://web.augsburg.edu/hr/Student/Supervisor_Recruiting_Process.pdf.
