AAMI Leadership Workshop
• You're Invited to Celebrate 30 Under 30 Alumni


• The process for submitting expenditure transfers for payroll reallocations (account code 5xxxxx only) will be changing effective immediately. Our current process transfers payroll expenses from one chart string to another through a journal entry processed in PeopleSoft by the Office of the Controller. This has caused the ADP and PeopleSoft systems to be out of sync and has resulted in a significant increase in time and effort to reconcile the two systems.

A new form, similar to the current expenditure transfer form, has been created. The Payroll Reallocation Form will replace the current expenditure transfer form for all 5xxxxx payroll expense corrections only. All non-personal services corrections (account codes 6xxxxx, 7xxxxx, 8xxxxx, & 9xxxxx) should be submitted using the current process and form found on the Controller’s website.

There will be a date set when final payroll reallocations can be submitted for the current fiscal year. This deadline will be published with the year-end calendar deadlines. The Payroll Reallocation Form will be located on the Human Resources website.

UWG alumni and friends are invited to explore the vast beauty of Ireland April 19-28, 2016. Soak in the landscapes of rolling hills and feel the warmth of an Irish welcome. Visit Dublin, Waterford, Killarney and Limerick as this comprehensive tour introduces Ireland's natural beauty, rich history and most importantly, its hospitable culture.

Construction will begin and remain in process on the Campus Center Shade Structure through January 2016. Portions of the Campus Center Patio will be inaccessible. Please obey the fencing and construction signage. Upcoming sidewalk closures will be posted in advance to help facilitate all pedestrian traffic needs in the area. As always in a construction area, pay attention to your surroundings.
