Move News

_The Dean's Office has requested that everyone update their 'Agreement to use KSU Property Off Campus' to consolidate information on previous forms with new information about KSU property you will use off campus after our move. If you have completed a form in the past, Jody will place it in your mailbox today. You can access the current form to use in this update here

Please submit the form to Jody by May 22 and let her know if you have any questions about how to complete the form. You may use one form for all property.


 

_Move Meetings will be held on May 1 (RCP) and 4 (LA). We'll talk about the agenda for these meetings at this Thursday's faculty meeting--be thinking about how we can help one another adjust to the changes that will come with construction. Please plan to come for pizza and information on the 1st or 4th.
