Give back this holiday season
The Temple community provides many opportunities to help the less fortunate this holiday season. A list of ways to help can be found online at
Host an international student for Thanksgiving dinner
The peer international educators of the Office of International Services have planned a special event for the Thanksgiving holiday. If you have not already decided with whom you will be spending those holidays, consider sharing dinner with an international student.
To host a student, fill out the information form at astro.temple. edu/~oispeers and fax it to the Office of International Services at 204-6166 by or before Friday, Nov. 19. You can also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 204-4683.
Temple posts organizational hierarchy online
In response to the need to develop a comprehensive system at the University that documents the existing organizational reporting structure, the Human Resources Department has introduced the Organizational Hierarchy system. This is a Web-based system developed to document the reporting relationships that exist within the University.
Temple is using the system to establish supervisory level access to the Performance Development System and plans to utilize the information in other University applications.
The system can be accessed at https://webserv.adminsvc.temple.edu/tuorgcharthierarchy/default.aspx. An AccessNet User ID and password are required to log in to the system.
If you have any questions regarding the system or see that any corrections or updates need to be made, contact Kathy Cole-Wermuth, administrative specialist with payroll management, at 204-5616 or email@example.com.
Freshman Summer Reading Project nominations sought
The University community is invited to nominate books for the 2005 Freshman Summer Reading Project.
Each summer, incoming freshmen are asked to read the same book to provide them with a common learning experience before their arrival on campus. Last year’s selection was Caucasia by Danzy Senna.
Visit www.temple.edu/summerreading/suggestions.html to review the guidelines and submit nominations. The deadline for nominations is Nov. 30.
