T-SHIRT FUNDRAISER FOR THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION: Join the University Human Resources Division in raising money for the American Heart Association. They have designed a special t-shirt for this fundraiser and all of the sales will be donated to the American Heart Association. The online shopping cart will be open now through Tuesday, Apr. 21. All t-shirts will be available for pick-up at the EMU Convocation Center during the first week of May (details to follow). Visit the Underground Printing Online Cart to purchase. For questions, please contact Hillary Stark at 487-6811 or email at hross6@emich.edu.


ATTENTION BUDGET MANAGERS: Business and Finance is pleased to announce that Self-Service Budget Transfers will go live on Friday, 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.


CAMPUS-WIDE DEPARTMENT COMPETITION: The EMU Children's Institute is having a campus-wide department contest now through Friday, May 22 to help raise money for the EMU Children's Institute Family Scholarship Fund. At the end of the contest, the department with the highest monetary amount combined will win six large-pizzas, chips and water (up to a $50.00 dollar value) to be delivered in June. Participation in the contest is easy. All you have to do is save the labels from Campbell products and box tops from participating products and turn them into the Children's Institute by May 22. Please include your department name, a contact name and phone number with your box tops and labels. For more information, or to get a collection bin for your department, please contact Beth Kahl at 487-2348 or Chris Finch at 487-2426.


BANNER SYSTEMS TO USE NETID (FORMERLY CALLED MY.EMICH) CREDENTIALS: An update will take place over the weekend of Friday, Apr. 17. During this time, Banner systems will be updated to use the NetID username and password. Since only the NetID credentials will be maintained, this change will make it more convenient for those who access Banner, Xtender, Workflow, and EPrint. For more information, visit Banner System Info or contact the IT Help Desk at 487-2120 or via email it.helpdesk@emich.edu.
