What One Thing Can We Do to Make CSU Better?

Harlan M. Sands

ONE THING RESULTS 

 

Continue $6 Fridays during the summer at Viking Marketplace through the academic year for faculty/staff.
Erica Thomas

We appreciate the suggestion, Erica. As a result of the success from the summer Friday lunch promotion, CSU Dining plans to launch a pilot program where Friday lunches in the Viking Marketplace will be offered to faculty and staff at an incentivized rate. Details to come soon!


I suggest making continuing education/professional development across the University more predominate on the CSU website.
Brandie Blanksenship

Thanks, Brandie! A link to the CSU Professional Development Center website has been added to the footer of the CSU homepage, under “Academic Resources.”


Clean or replace the window in RT807.
Vern Morrison

Your office window has been replaced, Vern. Enjoy the view! 


The Rec Center should offer summer discounts for returning students.
Anonymous

Good news! Campus Recreation Services offers a discounted off-semester student membership option for students not currently enrolled in classes. An off-semester student is one who was enrolled during the previous semester or will be enrolling in the upcoming semester at CSU. The off-semester student membership is $30 per month or $90 for the semester. This represents a savings of $16 per month/$48 per semester over the community membership rate, or $10.25 per month/$30.75 per semester over the alumni/sponsored membership rate. Please visit the Rec Center website for more information. 


My “One Thing” would be fixing the stall for people with disabilities in the men’s restroom directly across from MC103. The door is unable to close/lock, rendering the stall useless for those who need it.
John DeMarco

A new latch has been installed. The door now closes and locks.


Pull the thistle outside Main Classroom and Julka Hall.
Angela Lauffenburger

The thistle outside Julka Hall has been removed. Thistle removal elsewhere on campus will continue in the coming days.


Payroll currently posts pay dates, but only for semi-monthly faculty/staff, hourly biweekly staff and part-time single contracts. It would be helpful if they also posted the first pay date for full-time faculty summer teaching contracts, and part-time single-term contract pay dates for each of the summer sessions.
Sara Finlay

Thanks, Sara. Based on your suggestion, we’ve posted a summer pay calendar for full-time faculty as well as a pay calendar for part-time, single-term instructors. You’ll find these calendars on the Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) website. Thanks to Interim Payroll Director Kadiesha Jarrell-Hill and HRIS Manager Patty Baszuk for making this happen.

 


At Cleveland State University, our leadership team is working tirelessly on behalf of students, faculty and staff to set a course forward with common goals and execute a plan to achieve them. As we begin to forge a collective vision, I want to learn more about your priorities for our University. So I ask you: 

What one thing can we do to make CSU better?

I would love to hear your suggestion. Please email it to me at President.Sands@csuohio.edu

Thanks in advance for your feedback. Together, we can make this great institution even greater. 

Sincerely,
Harlan M. Sands
