Most frequently, ROA activities are summer experiences, but partial support of sabbaticals may also be provided. For information about the ROA program, please see Section II D of the RUI announcement online.

Complete details and directions for the new HUP are available at https://gustavus.edu/gts/Hup. Questions can be directed to the Technology Helpline (507.933.6111 or email@example.com).
Travel with Gustavus...Exploring Luther’s Reformation and the Nazi Holocaust. Journey on an educational tour of Germany and Poland with Gustavus professor emeritus of Religion Rev. Dr. Darrell Jodock from October 4 to 16, 2014. The first focus of the trip is on the life and teachings of Martin Luther, along with the ongoing significance of his theology. The second focus is on the tragedy of the Nazi Holocaust and the lessons to be learned. For more information, visit gustavus.edu/president/tours/.
Parking Info for Christmas Break, J-Term, and Touring Week...If you are leaving your vehicle on campus during Christmas break, you must park in the gravel parking lot - red permit parking in the Bjorling Lot directly west of the music building or if that fills up, the designated break parking section in the Arbor View Lot. Any vehicles not moved to this location during break will be towed at the owner’s expense. Look for the Break Parking signs to park in the correct area – cars parked in the wrong rows of Arbor View/Bjorling will still be towed at owner’s expense ($70 minimum).
Regular parking enforcement is in effect finals week, all of January Term and Touring week; always assume parking is enforced. Always register your vehicle with Campus Safety and have a valid permit displayed before parking. Please park according to permit color and note that Visitor parking is closed to students and staff at all times (24/7/365). Green permit parking lots are always no parking 2-7 a.m., seven days a week; as are the red permit parking rows in the Stadium (Beck) parking lot.
Please contact Campus Safety with any questions 24-hours a day at 507-933-8888. Emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org are answered during business hours.
2014 Employee Health Screening...Appointments will be available every work day morning, 7-9 a.m., from Jan. 6 to Jan. 31 at Gustavus Health Service for current employees and spouses. Location for retirees will be Rivers Edge Hospital. Please do not call Health Service to schedule your appointment until you receive your letter.
The Staff Personnel Committee has already begun gearing up for our traditional Staff Christmas Party on Friday, Dec. 20. This party is always an exciting time as we try to incorporate the spirit of giving. One of the ways we do this is by providing door prize drawings. Although we have a small budget for purchasing items to give away, we traditionally rely on departments around campus to donate any items as they feel appropriate. Donations may range from a gift card for a campus service to complimentary gifts received from outside vendors to handmade/homemade items that reflect your skill/talent that could be passed on to fellow co-workers as a wonderful gift. In the next few weeks, please watch for items that may come into your office/department and/or items you might already have that you would be willing to donate as a gift. To make a contribution, please contact or send items to Jeannie Peterson (email@example.com) in the library, Teri Bauman (firstname.lastname@example.org) with GTS, or Anna Mae Barklow (email@example.com) with Custodial Service.
