Announcements

Delay in Credit Union Opening
Due to construction issues related to renovation, there will be a delay in the re-opening of the Federal Printing and Engraving Credit Union, located on the first floor of Leahy Hall. The credit union is expected to be open for business by the end of January. The credit union asks customers to be patient during this delay.

Registration for the spring session will be held on Thursday, Jan. 13, at 1 p.m. in the Pryzbyla Center, Room 351. The 15-week session runs until May 5 and costs $150.

For more information, contact Katie Boone at 202-319-5615 or boonek@cua.edu.

 

Is CUA Open or Closed?
The Office of Public Affairs wishes to remind faculty and staff that, in case of inclement weather, there are two quick ways to find out if the university is closed or if opening is delayed. The information is usually available no later than 6 a.m. by checking the CUA Web site at http://www.cua.edu
 or by calling the university’s main number — 202-319-5000. In addition, the public affairs office contacts all local TV outlets and major radio outlets, which also report the information.

 

Training for Cardinal Station
During the Christmas break, CUA upgraded the current version of Cardinal Students. The new Web-based version, Cardinal Station, improves functionality for campus users while providing the same information on student records. The only true difference is the "look and feel," since this latest version operates via the Web. The new Web site address is http://cardinalstation.cua.edu .
The current icon on employee PCs (the cardinal bird) no longer provides access to the system. Once in the Web site, users can navigate via the menu on the left the former "client" applications are under the heading "Student Admin/Human Resources."

 

To assist with the new navigational process, the Office of Business Services and the Office of the Registrar will provide voluntary training. The training schedule is as follows:

 

Jan. 10: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Jan. 11: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Jan. 12: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Jan. 13: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Jan. 18: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Jan. 19: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

With the exception of Jan. 19, all classes will be held in Shahan Hall, Room 302. The Jan. 19 class will meet in Pangborn Hall, Room 301.

Since space is limited, those who wish to participate are encouraged to register early. To do so, contact Andrew Wolf at wolfa@cua.edu. Those registering should include first and last name, department and preferred training session (date and time).

For Your Benefit

Minimum Wage Increase
The minimum wage in Washington, D.C., has increased to $6.60 per hour. The Office of Human Resources has reviewed the hourly pay rates of all CUA employees to ensure that everyone is earning at least this new rate. Those employees who were below the new minimum (all of whom were students) received raises to $6.60 per hour, effective Jan. 1. Their raises will be reflected in the Jan. 25 paychecks.

Going forward, supervisors and hiring managers are advised that all new hires must earn at least the new DC minimum wage. To read more about CUA's response to the minimum wage increase, visit http://humanresources.cua.edu/minimumwage.doc. For addtional questions or concerns, contact Schlain Schmidt or Laura Burhenn at 202-319-5050.
