Employee Onboarding Workshop - Thursday, September 19, 2019

Employees who are new to HSU or who move into a new position on campus benefit greatly when their onboarding experience is well-managed and meaningful. Research shows employees who are onboarded with intention and thoroughness are 58% more likely to stay in their jobs more than three years. This course will equip anyone with employee onboarding responsibilities with clear guidelines and best practices for onboarding new employees.

Service to Community - Making Connections through OLLI at HSU in 2020

Have you ever considered offering a class for the community through OLLI? Teaching for OLLI offers the opportunity to share your expertise and make direct connections with learners beyond the HSU campus. OLLI at HSU is a vibrant lifelong learning community with over 1300 members in our region. During the winter term, OLLI classes meet one time for 2 ½ hours or a full day from 10:30-4:30 for classroom instruction and activities without assessment or homework. Through the years I've found most faculty have a "favorite lecture" or block of instruction.

Don't buy gift cards!

HSU is continuing to see a high volume of "imposter" emails that claim to be from the University President, a VP, or a Department Chair. These emails NEVER come from the email address of the person they claim to be from - they are usually from throwaway gmail.com addresses.

It can be hard to see the sender's actual email address, as opposed to the display name, particularly on mobile devices; unfortunately, it's all too easy for hackers to spoof display addresses.
