  • Civil Service Annual Evaluations 2024

    READ MORE

    Civil Service Employee Evaluations

    Civil Service appraisals are required to be completed on an annual basis and should cover approximately 12 months. Typically, the beginning of the fiscal year is the start of the evaluation period, and as such, the end of the same fiscal year (June 30, 2024) is when Civil Service evaluations should be received by Human Resources.

     

    After discussion with the employee, the form should be completed and signed by the employee, then signed by the supervisor and the department head/director. Once this process is complete, the form should be forwarded to Human Resources.

    For more information about the performance appraisal process, please go to this link www.eiu.edu/humanres/classification/performanceappraisal.php.  At the bottom of the page, click the “Appraisal Handbook” link for more in-depth information regarding the performance appraisal process.

    Please use this link to access the EIU Civil Service Performance Appraisal form www.eiu.edu/humanres/forms/cs_employee_appraisal.pdf.

  • Eric Wahls to serve as Interim Director of Facilities Planning and Management

    READ MORE

    Colleagues,

    Re: Interim Director of Facilities Planning and Management

    I am proud to announce that Eric Wahls has agreed to serve as the Interim Director of Facilities Planning and Management effective July 1, 2024.  Please help me to welcome Eric to this new role.

    Eric has served at EIU since 2014 and during that time has coordinated most of the project management for our campus.  These projects have included projects of all sizes and complexities, including large CDB projects and small room renovations.  Eric has a tremendous knowledge of our facilities and has developed good relations with the project stakeholders and trades.  Prior to EIU, Eric spent 13 years with RR Donnelley as a Maintenance Supervisor and Industrial Project Engineer. 

    Eric can hit the ground running and lead the Facilities Department as we consider facilities reinvestment and support the talented personnel that work in Facilities Planning and Management.

    Please support and help Eric be successful in this important University role.

  • Celebrating Julie Lockett

    READ MORE

    As of June 1, 2024, Julie Lockett, the Director of Learning Innovation in the FDIC has retired. Julie was a founding member of the FDIC and served in this role as a standard bearer for educational excellence.

    Julie received a degree in Education from Eastern Illinois University and a graduate degree in Curriculum & Instruction with a specialization in Instructional Technology & Design from Southern Illinois University - Carbondale. She has been an educator since 1992 and has been teaching online courses in higher education since 2000. Julie earned the Master Online Teacher certification from the University of Illinois and is a certified Quality Matters Peer Reviewer. Julie has served higher education in the field of instructional technology and design since 1999.

    Julie spent nearly 20 years at EIU including positions in the College of Education as well as the Center for Academic Technology Support (CATS) before moving to the FDIC. She served as the lead consultant for instructional technology, and provided leadership, training, and consultation to assist EIU faculty in creating and implementing effective strategies to incorporate technology into their curriculum. Most notably, Julie served as the facilitator for the Online Course Development Institute (OCDi), which she designed and implemented since 2008. In this capacity, she guided over 500 EIU faculty in the design and implementation of quality online courses.

    In addition, Julie was the FDIC’s administrator for our suite of instructional technologies including D2L, Turnitin, and Respondus. She was our Quality Matters (QM) Coordinator and in 2021, Julie developed the Quality Online Course (QOC) certification program. The QOC was established by the FDIC to recognize the hard work and dedication of EIU faculty for their excellence in online education and quality online course design. With these foundations, Julie also contributed the Quality Online Design Institute (QODi) to the FDIC’s Excellence in Online Instruction program.

    There will not be a retirement reception, but please feel free to contact Julie at her EIU email (jalockett@eiu.edu).

    Clearly, Julie will be missed. Her impact on the FDIC and more importantly EIU is tremendous. With her retirement we lose not only a valuable staff member, but an incredible and passionate colleague who served as an exemplar of the mission of EIU.

  • Facility Assessments of Campus Buildings

    READ MORE

    As part EIU’s  strategic plan ‘Plan 2028,’ Bureau Veritas Technical Assessments will be conducting facility assessments of campus buildings beginning May 6, 2024, with a tentative conclusion at the end of June.  Their technicians will be assessing most of EIU's buildings, including interior public spaces, offices,  classrooms, resident rooms, mechanical rooms, utility closets, restrooms, rooftops, and the exterior of the building and site.  During the assessment they will be cataloging conditions, reviewing equipment and documenting this through photos.  They will be careful not to include people, personal items or photos, or anything of a sensitive nature.  They will announce themselves when entering private spaces.  All Bureau Veritas employees have been background checked and vetted, and they will be uniformed with vests and display a Bureau Veritas badge.  They will checkout a set of master keys from Facilities Planning and Management (FPM) for access.  They will not require escorts or input from your area, and very little inconvenience or disruption is expected as a result of the assessment.

  • Travel Rate Changes

    READ MORE
    The Illinois Higher Education Travel Control Board has recently revised its regulations to align with federal government reimbursement rates for both domestic and international travel. This adjustment is anticipated to simplify the process of locating hotels within the approved rates for travelers. Effective January 2, 2024, the Business Affairs dashboard has been updated to adhere to these modifications. Consequently, travelers will be required to provide more comprehensive information in the dashboard to ensure accurate rate calculations.

    Moving forward, further adjustments will be implemented in accordance with changes in federal government rates.

    For any inquiries, please reach out to Procurement, Disbursements & Contract Services at 217-581-5313.
