CAMPUS NEWS & EVENTS
|Welcome to SPU's Fac/Staff Bulletin!|
The Fac/Staff Bulletin is the weekly, internal newsletter for SPU faculty
and staff. All members of the SPU community are encouraged to submit information
to the bulletin at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by selecting “Submit Bulletin Items" from
the bulletin itself. The bulletin is published on Mondays, and deadlines to submit
information are Thursdays. The editor is Tracy Norlen, news and media relations
manager in University Communications. The bulletin is divided into six main sections.
Announcements highlight the major news and events on campus. All faculty and
staff are encouraged to submit information, including department news, academic
deadlines, campus events, or guest speakers. Digital photos and graphics are
especially welcome. When possible, event information will be published in the bulletin two weeks prior to the event. Remember to plan ahead when submitting your information.
Faculty and Staff News is for professional news related to your position at SPU or in higher education. Items of interest are conferences attended, book or articles written or published, presentations made, awards received, research completed, or a new title or position. Please don't be shy! We especially would like more professional news from SPU staff.
SPU in the News lists most of the print or broadcast media appearances by faculty and staff. If you've been used as a source for a reporter, please let us know by submitting it to the bulletin.
Milestones is for personal news of interest to the SPU community, including
births, adoptions, anniversaries, church service, mission trips, marriages,
awards, and athletic accomplishments. (Or anything else you'd like the whole
campus to know!). Digital photos are always welcome!
Pet Photo of the Week features pet photos submitted by faculty and staff.
You are encouraged to send a photo of your pet, including the pet's name and a
couple of sentences explaining the picture, to Fac/Staff Bulletin editor
Tracy Norlen at email@example.com. Only pets related to SPU faculty and staff members will be accepted, and only one pet photo per person, please. If your pet has already been featured, you are welcome to submit another picture and story. Preference will be given to those pets not yet featured in the Fac/Staff Bulletin.
Current Job Openings lists the most current information on open faculty and staff positions at SPU.
Finally, be sure to visit the SPU Classifieds for items to sell or buy, ridesharing, apartments or rooms for rent, lost and found, and volunteer opportunities. The SPU Classifieds can be accessed from the SPU home page under “SPU Virtual Campus."
|Spring Camp Casey Weekend Requests Due October 21|
Full-time, regular SPU faculty and staff are eligible to submit an online request for a spring weekend in a Victorian-style officers' house at SPU's historical beach property – Camp Casey Conference Center located on Whidbey Island.
The circa-1900 houses, once a part of the Fort Casey coastal military fortress, are available for your personal vacation use for a nominal booking fee of $35. The fee covers the cost to use a house for a weekend for you and your guests. The house accommodates up to 10 people. You may use the gym, the private beach, and other amenities at the conference center. To see photos, visit the Camp Casey Web page at www.spu.edu/casey/. Requests will be accepted for stays between February 1 and June 14, 2007. All requests must be submitted online by October 21. Please indicate three to five possible weekend dates on your request. The results will be distributed by November 15. If you are offered a spot, you will find that Camp Casey provides a wonderful setting for you and your guests to enjoy the rural, historical beauty of Whidbey Island. Go for walks, collect rocks on the beach, bicycle around Crockett Lake, fly a kite, play board games in the dining room, go out for dinner, read a book, or shop in nearby Langley or Port Townsend. Camp Casey is a great place for R&R. If you have questions, email Maralie Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call toll-free to 866-661-6604.
