TSA Inve$tor goes paperless
The UW System's TSA Inve$tor newsletter, which UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff previously received twice a year via campus mail, has gone paperless and is now available online. TSA Inve$tor is published in the fall and the spring to provide information on investing and retirement planning and to assist UW employees in preparing for a financially secure retirement. This fall's issue offers articles on what to look for in an investment portfolio and answers frequently asked questions about the TSA Program. It is available online in PDF format. Additional information on the TSA program can be found on the Tax-Sheltered Annuity 403(b) Program Web site. Questions regarding TSAs can be directed to Amy TeBeest, UW-Eau Claire Human Resources, at email@example.com or 836-2513.

Summer 2006 orientation advisers sought
Faculty and instructional academic staff members are invited to apply to become 2006 summer orientation advisers. The positions are 37½ percent summer positions (same compensation as teaching a three-credit summer course.)
• Training sessions will be held June 7, 8 and 9, 2006 (exact schedule will be determined at a later date).
• Fifteen one-day sessions will be held the first three weeks of the eight-week summer session, June 12 30. In addition, advisers will be involved in one-day orientation programs for new students on Aug. 21, 2006, and in January 2007.
• Advisers new to orientation will be required to attend two to three training sessions in April and May.
• All advisers will be invited to a dinner with the orientation assistants in late April.
• All advisers will be expected to meet with their orientation assistant prior to the end of the spring semester.
• Every adviser will meet in the morning with a group of about eight students. The session is three hours long; the adviser and the orientation assistant share the time.
• In the afternoon, students will have individual 20-minute appointments with the same adviser.
• Faculty and staff members selected for these positions generally will advise students in several different majors (or undeclared students) throughout the course of the summer sessions.
The selection of summer orientation advisers is extremely important. The individuals selected for these positions must be current members of the faculty or teaching academic staff who have a commitment to advising, a “track-record” of good advising and a real interest in working with first-year students.
Applicants must currently have assigned advisees within their departments. Those who have served as summer advisers bring important knowledge and skills back to their departments and serve as valuable resources to their colleagues.
Advisers must be available for all of the dates listed above. They may not teach during either the three week or the first four week summer session.
Applications are available online, by calling 836-5053 or through Sarah Forcier at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due Monday, Nov. 28. Applicants will be notified in December. For more information, contact Jacqueline Bonneville at email@example.com or 836-3487.
