Additional COVID-19 testing among some residence hall students follows wastewater analysis

Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President

 

OSU community members,

 

As you know, TRACE OSU is conducting weekly random COVID-19 testing of up to 1,000 faculty, staff and students and wastewater analysis to monitor the presence of the virus at our campuses in Corvallis and Bend and at the Hatfield Marine Science Center.

 

Veterans Priority Registration

Purpose:

A recent legislation mandates availability of priority registration for all VA (Veteran Administration) benefit receiving students and requires reasonable accommodation to VA benefit students around course registration.

Background to the Project:

House Bill 2645 mandates public universities and community colleges to provide priority registration to veteran benefit students. Deadline for implementation is Sept. 15, 2016.

Objectives:

AR 25h Enforcement Project

Purpose

Academic regulation 25h has been inconsistently enforced at OSU. This project adjusts enforcements so that AR 25h points 2, 3 and 5 are aligned with how point 4 is enforced (via the degree audit).

Background to the Project

Schedule of Classes: PATH

Purpose

In Spring 2020, OSU will implement Schedule of Classes: PATH. OSU purchased a suite of tools from LeepFrog Technologies which integrate with Banner, and each other, to provide a modern, long-term solution to the student registration experience.  The integration of PATH within the Schedule of Classes (SoC) will allow OSU to enhance the student experience for course search and registration processes with specific emphasis on:

CIM (Curriculum Inventory Management) Tool

Contact for assistance: [email protected]

Purpose

In Fall 2019, OSU will implement CIM, Curriculum Inventory Management, to replace the current Curriculum Proposal System. OSU purchased a suite of tools from LeepFrog Technologies which integrate with Banner, and each other, to provide a modern, long-term solution to the university’s curriculum and scheduling needs.  Implementation of CIM will allow OSU to revise and improve the process of submitting curriculum proposals.

Emergency Contact

The Emergency Contact tells the university who should be contacted in case a student, staff, or faculty member is involved in an emergency. New students provide this information during START registration and current students may update the information in MyOSU. By completing the form, students grant OSU permission to contact the person they provide as an emergency contact.
