|Pick Up Your Free Bus Pass|
The 2005-06 Metro FlexPasses have arrived. The Metro FlexPass is free to all full-time (32 hrs/wk or more) regular employees of SPU during their employment period. The FlexPass is valid on any Metro Transit bus route as well as the Sounder train, and it can also be used for paying monthly Vanpool or Vanshare dues. To pick up a pass, bring your employee ID card to the Safety and Security Office, 601 West Emerson Street, and fill out an 0506 CTR Form and FlexPass Agreement. If you have any questions regarding the FlexPass program or alternative commuter methods, contact Program Assistant Justin Langhofer at (206) 281-2821, or visit the King County Metro Website.
|Let Us Know About Your Campus Events for 2005-06|
Twice a year, the Office of University Communications publishes a community events
brochure titled “Engage," highlighting a sampling of campus events of interest to
the public. Previous brochures have invited neighbors to guest lectures, symposia,
concerts, athletic events, gallery showings, theatre productions, etc. This
brochure is sent to more than 35,000 alumni, friends, and Seattle neighbors. We are
now collecting event information for the 2005-06 academic year, especially for
Autumn and Winter Quarters. If you are planning an event of interest to the public,
please forward the information to Tracy Norlen in University Communications at email@example.com. We are also interested in any possible events you may be planning, so please send that information as well. If you have questions, contact Tracy at (206) 281-2977.

|Summer Institute for Artists, Writers|
The Glen Workshop, sponsored by Image: A Journal of Art and Religion, is an innovative and enriching program for artists and writers combining the best elements of a workshop, arts festival, and conference. The workshop will be held July 31–August 7 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Classes at “The Glen" are led by nationally known authors and artists. Small class sizes allow the faculty to pay close attention to each participant -- whether he or she is a beginner or well advanced in his or her craft. The Glen is also an illuminating conference on the relationship between art and religious faith, where participants practice and strengthen their craft and vision in community. Now published at SPU, Image is one of America's leading literary and arts journals, and explores the relationship between Judeo-Christian faith and art. For more information on The Glen, visit the Web page.
|Fac/Staff Bulletin Switches to Summer Schedule|
The Fac/Staff Bulletin is published every other week during the summer. Be sure to send your announcements and news as early as possible to the Fac/Staff Bulletin editor (Tracy Norlen) at email@example.com, or submit an item directly from the Fac/Staff Bulletin. The next deadline is Thursday, July 14. The next publication date is July 18.
