MAILED PAY STUBS TO STOP FOR EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE PAY DEPOSITED ELECTRONICALLY
Beginning Friday, Feb. 5, pay stubs reflecting pay deposited electronically will no longer be mailed to employees. Paycheck and leave balance information are available through the Human Resource Information System employee self service -- also called HRIS -- at http://www.as.ksu.edu/HRIS/

The online data is secure and can only be accessed by entering your K-State eID and password. In addition to the paperless pay stubs, there are other self-service applications available to employees. Employees may view personal information, view and update tax or direct deposit information, enroll in training and more. A link to the HRIS system also is now available on the left-hand side of the K-State home page, http://www.k-state.edu

The paycheck information will be available no later than the Monday prior to a Friday payday. At least four years of historical information also is available.

The state of Kansas has had paperless pay stubs available for several years and K-State was one of three state agencies that still printed them. All other state agencies discontinued the mailing of pay advices in July 2003.

For the few employees who receive a paper paycheck, the checks will still be mailed as usual.

Questions may be e-mailed to HR@k-state.edu. Julie Henton, associate director of human resources, may also be reached at 532-6277.

K-STATE'S BEACH MUSEUM TO HOST VALENTINE-THEMED WORKSHOPS FOR ADULTS AND THE FAMILY
K-State's Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art will have two workshops for sweethearts inspired to make valentines.

A workshop for adults will be at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3.

"This would make a great date-night activity," said Kathrine Schlageck, the museum's senior educator. "We often hear that adults would like to participate in their kids' art activities. This is a great chance to do so."

Those who want to surprise their sweetheart with a handmade valentine are also welcome.

Desserts and refreshments will be provided, along with all materials and supplies needed to create valentines. The cost is $10 per person and reservations are required by calling 785-532-7718.

Schlageck will lead a workshop for the whole family from 2-3:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7. The museum's current "Gail Gregg: The Album Series" exhibition will be used as inspiration.

"Valentine supplies with a picture frame theme will be provided for all participants," Schlageck said. "Of course, all the traditional lace, doilies and paper will be available, too."

Refreshments will be served and the cost is $5 per child. Beach Buddy members pay half price and will receive a special gift. Beach Buddy memberships may be purchased at the workshop. Reservations for the family workshop are not required, but all children must be accompanied by an adult.

For more information, contact the Beach Museum of Art at 785-532-7718 or drop by the museum on the southeast corner of the K-State campus at 14th Street and Anderson Avenue. Free visitor parking is available next to the building. Normal museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed Mondays.

 

CAMPUS MIGRATING TO ZIMBRA CALENDAR THIS YEAR
Following the successful migration to K-State Zimbra e-mail in the spring, work is now under way on the implementation of the K-State Zimbra calendar. This process will include the transition of data from Oracle calendar.

Oracle calendar is still the official K-State calendar, with plans for K-State Zimbra calendar to become the official calendar in June.

Beginning in February, information technology services will present a series of open forums and training sessions about K-State Zimbra calendar. Further information and updates about the calendar transition will be available continually during the transition process and will be available at the K-State Zimbra project Web site: http://k-state.edu/its/zimbra

Information technology services will also begin working with individual departments that currently use Oracle to discuss options for transitioning objects and data into the K-State Zimbra calendar.

Once the transition is complete, K-State Zimbra calendar will allow for full calendar sharing, delegated access and a seamless integration with K-State Zimbra e-mail.

Please contact the IT help desk with any questions at 532-772 or helpdesk@k-state.edu.
