1. Access to university websites to change for website authors

IT Services will upgrade the Marquette Web server in early July, resulting in access changes for website authors (those responsible for maintaining Web pages). Website authors will receive e-mail messages about the specific timing of the upgrade and instructions about accessing their respective programs’ webpages as the upgrade progresses. For additional information, see the project website.

The Marquette website will be available during the upgrade, except for an approximate 30-minute interruption.

3. Smoking prohibited within 25 feet of university buildings

Smoking is prohibited in all university buildings and within 25 feet of all building entrances and balconies to comply with Wisconsin Act 12, “Smoke-Free Wisconsin,” as well as to support campus health and safety. The university’s smoking policy also prohibits smoking in parking structures and university-owned vehicles and prohibits designating any indoor location as a “smoking area.”

Voluntary compliance is emphasized. However, anyone observing someone who is smoking in a no-smoking area is encouraged to courteously inform the smoker that he/she is in violation of the university’s smoking policy. Repeated violations by employees may be subject to the university’s progressive disciplinary policy; by students to the university’s student code of conduct.

Those who do smoke should also make sure they properly dispose of their cigarette butts in the receptacles provided throughout campus.

The Employee Wellness Program and Raynor Memorial Libraries have resources available.

For more information, contact Steve Duffy, associate vice president of administration, at 8-6897.
