Calendar Tip – Unlocking Doors – PLEASE READ!

When adding a reservation to the college's online calendar, don't forget to select the resources needed to have your room ready.

If you've made room reservations and have not selected the resource for Campus Police to unlock your doors that means someone else is double checking for you. Please don't leave this to chance!

Please refer to these instructions which will help you make sure your needs are met. http://www.virginiawestern.edu/facstaff/docs/FacStaffCalendarInst.pdf

On page 12 you'll find instructions on using the Resources section of the calendar. Be sure to use this to make sure your room is unlocked by Campus Police, need support from the Media Geeks or require a guest wireless password.

New option! A new option to use is "No need to unlock, user has a key". Please use this option if you do not need Campus Police to unlock the door. Using this option will let us know that the resource was not accidently left off.

Thank you and please contact Tara Nepper with any questions.

2014-2015 Budget Update

As most of you are aware, the Virginia General Assembly was late adopting a state budget. The college only became aware of our funding for next fiscal year on June 23, 2014. As a result of the delay, the college’s internal budget process is similarly delayed. To carve out more time for our internal college process, 25% of the base operating budgets (same as last year’s allocation) will be loaded this week to allow spending in 2014 -2015 to continue; however, the college’s budget for the 2014 – 2015 budget year will not be finalized until on or around August 1st. At that time, you will receive information about the pending operating and personnel requests and your new budget for 2014 -2015.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly by email or phone. Your continued cooperation and patience is appreciated.

Cheryl C. Miller,
Vice President of Finance
