CAMPUS NEWS

Summer Hours on Campus

Starting Monday, May 2, the University shifts to its summer schedule.

The general hours of operation will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. All offices must be staffed during these hours.
Employees are expected to fulfill their usual full-time or part-time obligations.

Your actual work schedule must be approved by your supervisor. Regular office hours resume on Monday, August 15.


Volunteers Needed for Disaster Drill

A mock disaster drill will be held at Michigan Tech on Tuesday, May 10, and the University’s Department of Public Safety and Police Services is looking for 55 volunteers to play the role of “victims” during the exercise. Faculty, staff, students and community members are all welcome to volunteer.

“Volunteer actors are very important to improving the realistic nature of the exercise and helping make it even more effective for the emergency response personnel who plan to participate,” Jon Stone, a crisis management consultant who is running the drill, explains.

To sign up, click here. Stone will be providing more details directly to volunteers later this week.


Shuttle Service Adds Stop

In order to accommodate summer PE courses, as well as offer students and staff the opportunity to use the University shuttle to the Portage Lake Golf Course, Transportation Services has added a stop at the PLGC for the summer.

For details, see the updated schedule.

We hope you enjoy the expanded shuttle service.


Parking Spaces to be Painted

Transportation Services is currently painting the parking space lines around campus. Be prepared for partial lot closures to allow the painting to be completed. If you should arrive in a partially painted parking lot, utilize any available freshly painted parking spaces that are not within a barricaded area so that the painting crew can access the unpainted areas. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If there are any questions contact Transportation Services at 7-1441.
