3. Schroeder move-in is tomorrow; park accordingly
To help accommodate students moving into Schroeder Hall on Friday, Aug. 25, employees in lots D and F or those in Parking Structure 2 should park on the top four levels of the structure.
Thanks to all those who altered their parking preferences earlier in the week to provide parking for families moving students into freshman residence halls.
4. Doctoral program in Counseling Psychology is re-accredited
The American Psychological Association has granted full accreditation to the School of Education’s doctoral program in Counseling Psychology for the maximum seven-year period.
Bill Henk, dean of the School of Education, cited the leadership of Associate Professors Tim Melchert and Todd Campbell, co-directors of training for the Counseling Psychology program, as well as the efforts and caliber of all the Counseling Psychology faculty and students. Melchert coordinated the re-accreditation process. Dr. Sarah Knox is the new director of training for the program.
“This decision speaks highly of the talents and efforts of the department faculty and students along with the various administrators who support our program,” Melchert says.
5. Better Security for Public Access and Smart Classroom PCs
As part of an effort led by IT Services and the Instructional Media Center, specific PCs on campus will be managed via the network. This will allow for faster repair, more frequent updates and better security. Areas under central management can be found at online.
These computers are located in Smart Classrooms throughout campus, as well as in public spaces including: Brew Cudahy; Cudahy 108; the Brew Bayou; the Marquette Place in the AMU; and outside the Human Resources office in Straz Tower.
Please be aware of the following important notes regarding these computer:
1. You will need to log in with your eMarq username and password.
2. You should log off the PC when you have finished using it. (The computer will automatically log off after 30 minutes of inactivity in Smart Classrooms and 20 minutes of inactivity in public spaces.)
If you have questions or concerns throughout the fall term, please contact the IT Services Help Desk (8-7799).

7. Marquette’s Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi earns national award
Marquette’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi is one of 16 honored by the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society for its 2005-06 activities.
The “honor chapter” designation is based on chapter projects that reflect excellence in the study of the Spanish language, contributing to cultural understanding and upholding the goals of the organization. Sigma Delta Pi has 540 chapters nationwide.
Dr. German Carrillo is the Marquette chapter’s adviser and the national president of Sigma Delta Pi.
8. Have your Marquette paycheck deposited automatically
The opportunity to have payroll checks directly deposited into personal bank accounts is available to faculty, staff and student employees. Direct deposit means paychecks are automatically deposited into personal bank accounts on scheduled pay dates without having to first pick up checks and then make special trips to the bank or the Office of the Bursar.
Paychecks can be deposited into multiple accounts as well as out-of-state financial institutions. Those who do not have personal bank accounts, or prefer to establish a local banking relationship, may easily open an account at the U.S. Bank branch location in the Alumni Memorial Union.
To initiate the direct deposit process, log into Employee Self-service via MyJob. MyJob is an online application that gives you easy access to your employment and benefit information. Find out more about MyJob and how it’s used online.
Once you’ve logged into MyJob using your eMarq user name and password, choose “Personal Actions” from the menu, then “Manage Payroll Payments.” Follow the instructions on the screen, entering the appropriate routing and account numbers for each deposit amount. You will receive a message in "Notifications” on MyJob once Payroll accepts your direct deposit information.
More information is available by calling Payroll at 8-7264.
