HR Update Pix

HR Update March 24th

To keep communication as clear as possible, and archive it for later use, the Office of Human Resources will be sending out updates using this format.

If you have information that you would like to disseminate to all employees, please send that to hrupdate@augustana.edu and we will coordinate adding the information to a future HR update.

For now, we would ask that you limit any mass communications to avoid confusion.

Work from home guidance

Guidance about the ability to work from home continues without change from  the January guidance.  As a reminder:

1.  It is important that offices who provide service and information to students remain open for those functions.  Offices should carefully examine the best ways to provide in-person service and direction will be provided by individual supervisors and leaders.

2.  Employees who can work remotely should talk with their supervisor about the ability to work remotely, or a hybrid of on-campus and remote work, with requirements of staffing of offices as described above.  Cabinet members need to be notified of such working arrangements and will provide feedback as necessary. 

3.  Employees who continue to work on-campus for all or part of their work schedule should continue to follow the present campus guidelines for masks and social distancing.

JMU’s Center for Inclusive Music Engagement and Augustana College’s Department of Music will co-host the second biennial Disability Studies and Music Education Symposium on April 15-17, 2021. This event, with the theme “Intersectionality of Disabled Persons/Persons with Disabilities’ Experiences In, With, Through, and Around Music,” builds on our first-of-its-kind 2019 symposium, affording researcher-practitioner-artists opportunities to share disability studies-related work and to discuss potential uses of disability studies theorization for their future scholarship and teaching. Our keynote speaker is Leroy F. Moore, Jr., a Black writer, poet, hip-hop/music lover, community activist, and feminist with a physical disability; he is also founder of Krip Hop Nation. Other presentations will be shared by students, faculty, and community-based artists, practitioners, and scholars from JMU, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates.

This event is made possible through financial support from Augustana College Department of Music, University of Calgary, and JMU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, Cohen Center for the Humanities, and Office of Disability Services.
