Letter from Custodial Services
As many of you were enjoying some well deserved
time away from campus, we were here preparing for the fall semester.
Additionally, we were figuring out how to maintain the high standard
of cleanliness expected at UW-Eau Claire with three fewer positions
— a result of state budget cuts.
I assure you that we still will be able to support
UW-Eau Claire’s academic mission by providing a clean, comfortable
learning environment. However, it will be more difficult. All of you
can help by supporting the practice of no
food or drink, except water, in the classrooms, labs and library.
Also, please remind students to use the
recycling/trash bins in the hallways.
After reviewing the cleaning needs and associated
activities that make up our mission, we determined that the campus would
be best served by taking a position out of McPhee, Hibbard and McIntyre
Library. This will impact all buildings, because we will need to send
floaters to these buildings more often to cover for crew members who
are sick or on vacation.
Here is the cleaning you can expect from custodial
Public places — entrances, halls, restrooms, classrooms and labs
are cleaned five days per week. Department and administrative offices
are cleaned five days per week. Faculty and other single occupant offices
are scheduled to be cleaned once per week.
Custodial Services is available to respond to emergencies and other
concerns. We can be reached at 836-5817 (office) at 271-0857 (cell phone).
Wellness classes to be offered
University Recreation offers a wide variety of
workshops and non-credit classes that relate primarily to health, fitness
and nutrition. The program offerings are available to UW-Eau Claire
faculty, staff and students for a nominal registration fee. Every effort
is made to ensure that these courses and workshops meet the current
interests of participants and are taught by qualified instructors. Class
descriptions and registration information can be viewed online.
