From the President's Desk

I want to share some news regarding staffing transitions in the President's Office. Ms. Jean Noren has accepted the position of Administrative Assistant and will begin her work on Nov. 3. Jean is a 1988 graduate of Mankato State University. She has served in multiple positions, most recently as Marketing Specialist, at The Occasions Group in Mankato since 2001.

In addition, Ms. Pat Leagjeld, who has served as Administrative Assistant in the President's Office since 2000, transitioned to the Admission Office as Administrative Office Assistant and began her work in the Office earlier this month. Please join me in welcoming Jean to our campus community and thanking Pat for her good work in the President's Office.

 

News & Announcements

Say Cheese...The Marketing and Communication Office announces the opening of a new portrait photography service for the campus community. The purpose is to take professional quality head shots that can be used for profile pages on the Gustavus website, as well as for campus publications and media relations requests.

Starting Tuesday, faculty and administrators are invited to schedule an appointment for their updated photo in the new studio in the lower level of the Lundgren House. The studio will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 to 4:30 pm and Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. Appointments are scheduled in 15-minute blocks. Pre-registration for appointments is required and you can register through the Gustavus google calendar by clicking here.

As an incentive to motivate you to get a new photo, the Marketing and Communication Office has partnered with the Book Mark to offer a drawing to the first 100 individuals to have their photo taken. Two lucky drawing winners will receive a $25 Book Mark gift card. If you have  questions please contact Tim Kennedy at x6395.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day...The Saint Peter Police Department has scheduled a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. National Take-Back Day will provide a venue for persons who want to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. More than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, according to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Each day, approximately, 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet.

Four days after last fall's Take-Back Day, Congress passed legislation amending the Controlled Substances Act to allow the DEA to develop a process for people to safely dispose of their prescription drugs. DEA immediately began developing this process. Saint Peter Police will have 3 drop off sites to make it as convenient for you as possible. You can drop off any prescription drugs including liquids (no needles will be allowed) at one of these locations: Saint Peter Police Department, 207 South Front Street; Saint Peter Community Center, door B; or the Jackson Student Center lobby, on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College. Medications may be dropped off either with or without an original container. The process is quick and anonymous, with no questions asked.

Vacation Donations Being Accepted...Employees who would like to donate vacation hours for a Gustavus employee who will be on an approved FMLA leave and will run out of paid-time benefits should complete and sign a request for transfer of vacation hours available at the Office of Human Resources (x7304).

Get Your Flu Shot...Homeland Health will be offering additional flu shots for employees, students, retirees, spouses, and dependents on Thursday, Oct. 27. Age 3 and older can receive the flu injection and age 18 - 64 can receive T-dap. Click here for more information.
