New e-mail filter available
A new tool is available for reducing the amount of unwanted e-mail received by UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students. The program, iHateSpam®, is an e-mail filter that works by scanning the subject line and body of e-mail messages for keywords, symbols and phrases common to unsolicited e-mail.

The program is available to all UW-Eau Claire e-mail accounts, but will not automatically be applied. Users must enable the program online. Program documentation also is available online.

A brown bag session on the iHate Spam® e-mail filter will be held Sept. 9 from noon to 1 p.m. and repeated Sept. 10 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Tamarack Room of Davies Center.

If you have questions or need assistance with this program, contact the CNS Help Desk at helpdesk@uwec.edu or 836-5711. Comments or suggestions should be directed to iHateSpam@uwec.edu. Go to top of page

Notice on international programs
Consistent with its mission in teaching, research and service, UW-Eau Claire is actively involved in international education. International education has become an integral and vital component of university life, and its importance continues to expand. Responding to this growing interest, UW-Eau Claire encourages the development of study abroad opportunities that meet the legitimate academic needs of its students. At the same time, all programming abroad is expected to maintain standards of quality in the delivery of instruction, support services and administration, which are consistent with the educational excellence that every student is entitled to receive.

It is therefore essential that all international programming be done in a manner that is:
    Appropriate to the mission of the university.
    Integrated into the undergraduate and graduate curricula.
    Subject to regular, periodic review, evaluation and assessment, according to the university’s normal review procedures for academic programs and academic support programs.
    In compliance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations.

In addition, all programming abroad shall adhere to the specific guidelines set forth by the UW System. Academic Information Series (ACIS) 7.1-4 relates to the conduct of international programs at Wisconsin System universities. ACIS 7.1-2 specifically relates to the development and operation of educational programs abroad, and establishes policy guidelines for UW System faculty and academic staff abroad.

It is the responsibility of UW-Eau Claire’s Center for International Education to ensure that UW-Eau Claire remains in compliance with these guidelines. The CIE is charged with reviewing, evaluating and assessing all programming abroad, and ensuring that all new programming is developed according to the Guidelines of ACIS 7.1-2. Thus, all international programming must be developed, implemented and conducted in cooperation with the CIE and the International Educational Advisory Board.

The CIE will assess such programming with respect to the following issues:

    Health, safety and welfare of participants.
    Recruitment, admission, orientation, participation and re-entry.
    Host country considerations.
    Financial management.
    Responsibilities of faculty and staff.
    Responsibilities of the institution and the system.
    Academic fit in overall programming.
    Geographic representation. Go to top of page

Key policy notice
UW-Eau Claire staff members have reviewed many aspects of campus safety and security since the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

In order to enhance the safety and security of everyone on campus, consistent and accurate key control is essential.

Administrative Code requires that keys be assigned to and become the responsibility of individuals. Everyone who has signed for keys will be responsible for complying with the key policy, in terms of their use and eventual return.

Individuals will be fined if they do not return keys to Facilities Planning and Management when they are due. A hold also will be placed on individuals' personal university records until issues regarding keys are resolved.

For more information, visit the Facilities Planning and Management Web site or call 836-3411. Go to top of page
