Clarification regarding classified employees signing up for university support staff group discussions in HRIS

By Alternative Service Committee

In April and May, the Alternative Service Committee will hold multiple group discussion sessions for classified employees to attend and have the opportunity to provide valuable feedback and input to the committee about the white papers drafted in collaboration with Kansas State University. The drafted white papers have been developed under the provision of Statute 76-715a for a new system of administration for employment, known as university support staff, or USS.

To clarify the participation and registration process the following is being provided. Each group discussion session will be two hours in length and cover the same content; consisting of a verbal presentation of a brief history of the Alternative Service Committee, the charge of the committee and an overview of the drafted white papers, which will be followed by gathering feedback and input from classified employees in attendance.

Since all the sessions are the same, participation is only necessary for one session. Registration for a group discussion is available through your HRIS self-service portal with the course description listed as "ASC Group Discussions for USS" and the course number is WHR103. 

It is important you register due to room capacity limits. If you registered prior to this announcement you do not have to register again.

You may register in one of two ways: 

1)  Through HRIS Self Enrollment https://www.as.ksu.edu/psp/HRIS , or

2)  Email to training@ksu.edu. Please include your name, employee ID — if known, — course number WHR103, group discussion date and location. If you have questions, please contact training@ksu.edu or 532-6277.
