SPECIAL NOTICES:

 

* TRAINING SESSIONS ON PRIVACY ISSUES: To ensure that Eastern and its faculty and staff are in compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements related to privacy issues, a new training session has been developed by the Office of Business and Finance. The privacy training, which is mandatory for all faculty and staff, is offered on several different dates in an effort to accommodate schedules, and will also be offered in an online format. Faculty and staff can attend either kind of session. Below are the upcoming sessions:

  • Tuesday, February 12, 2:30 - 3:30 p.m., Halle Auditorium
  • Friday, February 15, 10 - 11 a.m., Halle Auditorium
  • Monday, February 18, 1 - 2 p.m., Halle Auditorium
  • Wednesday, February 27, 11 a.m. - Noon, Halle Auditorium
  • Thursday, February 28, 2 - 3 p.m., Halle Auditorium

Based on these sessions, a program will be developed for the on-line HR system called Success Factors, which will be available once developed. If you would like to arrange a training session for your department, please contact Margaret Tsilis at 487-3328. Participation is mandatory to attend one of the training sessions or complete on-line (once developed). No pre-registration is required. Additional dates will be announced. If you have any questions regarding privacy training, please contact Steve LaChance at 487-1490, or Andrea Jaeckel at 487-3328.
