Student Move-in Day needs your help

John Gerow of Residence Life is reminding all faculty and staff of a great opportunity to be of service on move-in day for freshmen, which occurs just prior to the FOCUS Orientation program held each fall. This year, move-in day is Thursday, Sept. 1, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. Says Gerow: "The feedback we receive each year from parents and students is extremely positive, with parents, students, and their families being very appreciative of our help and presence on this important day. Faculty, staff, and student volunteers have found this day to be a rewarding experience, and a change from their normal routines." Please respond by e-mail: (gerowj@uwgb.edu) if interested.

UW System President takes affirmative step on personnel controversies

After a summer of intense scrutiny from media, lawmakers and others, the UW System took a decisive step today to address criticism of its policies and practices. President Kevin Reilly is requesting the nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau to conduct a review of the System's employment practices. It is hoped the rare if not unprecedented move of pro-actively calling for an audit will yield information to complement a Board of Regents review already underway, help clear the air, and strengthen public faith in the System. See the announcement at http://www.wisconsin.edu/news/2005/r050823.htm.
