EMU Today


| Thursday, August 14, 2014


* COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES FALL MEETING: The College of Arts and Sciences will hold its Fall Meeting for CAS faculty and staff on Tuesday, Sept. 2, 1:30 - 3 p.m., in room 310AB in the Student Center. Refreshments will be available starting at 1 p.m. If you have questions, please contact Sally Lucas in the Dean's Office at 487-4344.


NEW EMPLOYMENT PORTAL FOR EMU STUDENTS: Career Services has transitioned to a new job portal called Handshake. This new system will allow EMU departments, as well as other employers to post job openings and also work-study positions. Students can view the job openings by clicking on the link handshake.emich.edu and entering their my.emich credentials or by going to my.emich and clicking on the Student Tab. EMU Departments or employers will need to request access to the new system in order to post a job opening. To request access, please visit https://app.joinhandshake.com/register. Contact Mary Chambers at mchambers@emich.edu or 487-1006 or Crystal Walrath at cwalrath@emich.edu or 487-1304 with any questions. 


YPSILANTI FIRE DEPARTMENT TRAINING EXERCISES ON EMU CAMPUS: The Ypsilanti Fire Department will be doing training exercises on the EMU campus at Jones and Goddard halls through Friday, Aug. 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


UPGRADES TO THE EAGLEMAIL SYSTEM: The EagleMail system will be upgraded to the latest version of the Zimbra email software beginning Saturday, Aug. 16 through Saturday, Aug. 30. Administrative staff mailboxes will be converted between August 16-22 and faculty mailboxes will be converted between August 23-30 (after Summer 2014 grades have been submitted). Email and calendaring services will remain available to all users during the migration, although response time may be slow. Please visit www.emich.edu/it/features/upgrades2014/zimbra8.php for a preview of the changes coming to EagleMail.


UPGRADE TO THE MY.EMICH PORTAL: The My.Emich portal will get a more contemporary look and feel on Friday, Aug. 22. Once logged in, you will see a modern design with familiar content. We are also re-branding the My.Emich username to “NetID” (since it is being used by more than the My.Emich system). Please visit www.emich.edu/it/features/upgrades2014/myemich_changes.php for a sneak-peek of the changes coming to My.Emich or go to https://my2.emich.edu to begin using the new interface.


EMU ONLINE DEPARTMENT DIRECTORY CORRECTIONS: Please take the time to check your Department Directory listing at http://www.emich.edu/telephones/ for accuracy. If your Department Directory listing information needs to be updated, please send the information to: dept_directory@emich.edu. For questions, contact Debra Burke at 487-6895 or by e-mail at dburke15@emich.edu.


PERSONAL DIRECTORY CORRECTIONS/UPDATES: Personal Directory Listings are populated through the Banner system. To check your personal listing for accuracy, please visit http://it.emich.edu/service/online/directory/index.cfm?fuseaction=main.

If a listing needs to be updated, an employee’s supervisor should update the information through a link located on the supervisor’s My.Emich Employee tab. Instructions are as follows:

  • Click on the Employee tab
  • Click on the Employee link below the row of tabs
  • Click on the Update Employee Campus Address link. You will then see a table of your direct reports. To edit, click on the EID or Phone links to edit. Once you have completed your edits, click the Submit button. NOTE: it may take up to 24 hours for your change to take effect.

For non-supervisory staff, alternate update methods are explained on the Directory Information Updates page at https://www.emich.edu/it/services/directoryupdates.php.
