WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A PRESENTER FOR A WRC BROWN BAG LUNCH EVENT?: The Women's Resource Center is looking for presenters for their Brown Bag Series. The series runs all semester long and is full of lectures or workshops that address a broad spectrum of issues relevant to women-identified individuals and anyone who interested in the programs. The program is designed to provide women-identified faculty, staff and students on our campus a safe space to discuss issues and provide them with education and resources to empower them to make an impact in the community. If you are interested in presenting or know of anyone who would benefit from presenting, please go to Women's Resource Center Form. For questions, please call 487-4282 or email at wrc_brownbag@emich.edu. 

Today's Events


ATTENTION BUDGET MANAGERS: Business and Finance is pleased to announce that Self-Service Budget Transfers will go live today, May 1. You will be able to access the system through Finance Self-Service  (my.emich, Finance Operations tab, Finance Quick links, Budget Queries, Budget Transfer or Multiple Line Budget Transfer). Individual departments will have permissions to enter and approve online budget transfers within their General Fund organizations or within their Auxiliary fund units. The transfers will follow routing queues conceptually similar to our online requisition process and once approved and posted by the Budget Office, Banner will be updated. We anticipate these changes will make our processes more efficient. For example, with this campus-wide functionality in place, we will no longer be accepting expense transfers after July 1. There will be information training sessions on these changes between April 15 and April 30. To register for a session, please visit Training Sessions. For questions, please contact Doris Celian at 487-0324 or email dcelian@emich.edu.
