Special Operating Hours Pilot

Business Operations has facilitated a pilot project designed to gather and organize the special operating hours from the various departments on campus into a single source. This special operating hours project was initiated in 2015 when the daily Tech Today feed was overwhelmingly populated with special notices from departments across campus communicating their specific hours for the fall, winter, and spring breaks. The ultimate goal of the project is to have Tech Today serve as a reminder for departments to submit their special operating hours to Business Operations where they will be posted on the /Business-Operations main page. The ultimate list of the department’s operating hours is also linked to from Michigan Tech’s main page.

According to Google analytics, the Business Operations website has been visited over 750 times in the last month that the special operating hours report has been active.

You can find the special operating hours form and list on the business operations website at mtu.edu/business-operations.

Michigan Tech Participating in Great Colleges to Work For Survey

Michigan Tech is participating in the Chronicle for Higher Education‘s 2017 Great Colleges to Work For survey.

The survey measures 15 workplace dimensions, including professional development, collaboration and fairness. The Chronicle for Higher Education will publish a list of recognized institutions in the fall.

A random sample of 600 Michigan Tech employees (both faculty and staff) will receive a survey invitation via email from Great Colleges (note that this email will not come from an @mtu.edu address).

The invitation will be sent to the randomly selected employees directly by the Great Colleges program, and will include details about the program and instructions on how to access the survey. The survey is voluntary and completely confidential — Michigan Tech is not interested in, nor will we be able to trace results back to individuals.

Employees can consider this as a follow-up to the University Senate’s 2017 evaluation of the president, focusing on workplace quality at Michigan Tech.

All survey responses will be processed by ModernThink, LLC, an independent management consulting firm working with the Chronicle for Higher Education to coordinate this annual program. If you receive the email invitation, you are asked to take a some time to complete the survey.

You will be representing not only yourself, but all your colleagues, so your feedback is invaluable. This is a chance to make your voice heard, and a high response rate helps ensure an accurate representation of the Michigan Tech community.

The survey opens on Monday (March 13) and closes on April 7th at the end of the business day.

If you have any questions, contact Ann Kitalong-Will, executive director of business operations-Vice President for Administration Office at 7-1809, or visit ChronicleGreatColleges.com.
