Planning to work at the University?

working_on_campusIf you plan to work on campus this year, you must complete an I-9 form before you can start work. Complete the form at www.newi9.com. Then schedule an appointment with your financial aid counselor to complete Part II of the online I-9. Bring your original documentation to the appointment. The most common documents used are a driver’s license and original Social Security card, birth certificate or a certified copy, or a passport. The appointment should take about 5 to 10 minutes.

The Financial Aid Office is located in G13 Wallis Hall on the River Campus. Eastman students must visit the Financial Aid Office at Miller Place on Gibbs Street to complete the I-9.

Communal Principles Project: Inclusion

The Communal Principles Project, an initiative of the College, coordinated by the Office of the Dean of Students, is charged with promoting the principles of fairness, freedom, honesty, inclusion, respect, and responsibility.

This is the “Year of Inclusion,” featuring—among other things— activities related to the principle. Students are invited to apply for grants (both $200 and $500) to develop new programs and events that exemplify the spirit and purpose of inclusion to the College community. For more information, visit www.rochester.edu/college/odos/communalprinciples/cpp.

Health insurance selection site open

Every year, all full-time students must complete the online health insurance enrollment/waiver process during open enrollment (June 16 to Sept. 15). Enrolling or waiving health insurance promptly ensures continuing coverage and accurate billing. Waivers approved after any month’s billing date will be reflected on the next billing cycle statement. Insurance plans must meet all University criteria to be approved for a waiver. Requests to waive may be audited. Students who do not enroll or waive online will be enrolled on the UR-sponsored plan for the year. Read more at www.rochester.edu/uhs/studentinsurance.

End-of-year collection a success

For the sixth year in a row, Facilities and Services sponsored Move-Out Clean-Out, an event to collect unwanted clothing and shoes and nonperishable food items at the end of the spring semester.

With the help of nonprofit organizations Planet Aid, Open Door Mission, and Grassroots, the University diverted thousands of pounds of waste from the landfill.

This year, 10,983 pounds of clothing and shoes were collected. Additionally, 2,817 pounds of food was collected and 1,328 pounds of old electronics were recycled. Read more at http://blogs.rochester. edu/thegreendandelion/2014/06/6th-annual-move-out-clean-out-results.
