Classroom modernization planning to begin
The Teaching and Learning Technology Development Center manages the classroom modernization budget for maintenance of classroom instructional technologies. The process involves a review of available technology, a review of technologies scheduled for replacement and the prioritization of requests from departments to meet instructional needs.

The TLTDC also works closely with Facilities Planning and Management for classroom renovation and instructional technology funds, a biennial allocation. CRIT funds are limited to comprehensive classroom renovations and cannot be used to only add technology to classrooms or to only replace seating.

John Lee, the TLTDC interim classroom services manager, and Steve Horner, director of Facilities Planning and Management, will meet with department chairs and deans in November. Requests for classroom consideration should be submitted through department chairs. For more information, contact Kathy Finder at or 836-2654. Go to top of page

Updated Faculty and Academic Staff Handbook online
The 21st edition of the Faculty and Academic Staff Handbook is available online. Comments and suggestions may be sent to Jan Morse, Academic Affairs, at or by campus mail. Go to top of page

Vans for 12 or 15 passengers, including rentals
The safety of UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance. Accordingly, the following policy regarding rental and/or use of 12 or 15-passenger vans has been in effect since July 1, 2002:

    A ban on all student drivers of 12 or 15-passenger vans with the exception of students over the age of 25 who meet all UW-System driving requirements and have completed required training for operating 12 or 15-passenger vans.
    A ban on all towing with 12 or 15-passenger vans, regardless of the driver.
    A ban on car top carriers on 12 or 15-passenger vans.
    Leasing of 12 or 15-passenger vans through state and university contracts is not allowed unless reviewed and approved by the institution’s risk management office. (Under no circumstances will students be allowed to lease or drive 12 or 15-passenger vans.)
    12 or 15-passenger vans can be used to transport cargo if the cargo and passengers are restricted in size, weight and number to the manufacturer’s suggested rated capacity of the vehicle.
    UW System faculty and staff will be allowed to continue driving 12 or 15-passenger vans as long as they are at least 25 years of age, meet UW-System driving requirements and have completed required training for operating 12 or 15-passenger vans.

Any exception to this policy must be documented in writing and approved by the chancellor of each UW-System institution, with the concurrence of the UW System Risk Management Office.

Travel regulation updates
Spouses and other family members are not allowed to travel in state owned vehicles. This includes vehicles rented through the Enterprise state contract. A spouse or family member may ride along on a business trip when a personal vehicle is used.

Travel card or credit card slips are no longer acceptable forms of receipts unless they are itemized (with transaction details) for any form of travel expenses including meals, lodging or miscellaneous expenses.
