Global Leadership Academy Visits Ft. Leavenworth and Kansas City Metro Campus
The Global Leadership Academy (GLA) is a Webster University employee leadership development program created in 2012 as a way to invest in employees and develop internal talent and leadership. Sixteen participants are selected each year for this unique opportunity to build cross-departmental relationships and explore all facets of Webster University's educational and business model. GLA fellows work side by side as together they explore topics that make Webster tick.
Applications for the 2013 GLA cohort are being accepted now. This group will have the opportunity to travel and experience first-hand Webster's Military, Metro, and International campus locations as a part of three multi-day meetings scheduled throughout the year. Upon successful completion, GLA fellows are awarded a certificate of completion.
All faculty and staff (full-time and part-time) throughout Webster's network of campus locations with at least one year of experience at Webster may apply for the program. Applications for the 2013 GLA cohort are being accepted until October 1. GLA fellows learn the importance of leading from wherever they are in the university.
Information for you or others at your campus is available at www.webster.edu/leadershipacademy.
Directors Summit September 23-26
This fall, directors from across the Webster network will gather in St. Louis for our annual meeting. This year's theme is Reach Out, Reach Up
, building on last year's theme of working together to build academic and operational excellence.
This year, Community Relations Coordinators will be invited to attend, with workshops geared towards their specific roles.
We are asking those in the Webster community who wish to present at one of the concurrent sessions to fill out a Concurrent Session Proposal Form
We are seeking proposals that will be relevant and informative, focus on implementing best practices, encourage the development of action plans, and stimulate meaningful discussion. We especially encourage the following:
- Collaborative sessions by co-presenters or panels that cut across units and sites
- Sessions that draw on source materials and present new "best practices" and theories that have potential for application in the Webster environment
- Sessions that include a variety of learning activities (for example: hypothetical situations, case studies, small group work) and relevant and useful "take-aways"
Please see the Call for Proposals information sheet [PDF] for more details. If you would like to be considered as a presenter for a concurrent session, please fill out the Concurrent Session Proposal Form [PDF] and submit by July 23.
IT Streamlining the Enterprise System Access Request Process
Beginning July 16, the IT Service Desk will be the central contact of the Enterprise Systems Access (ESA) request process. At the same time, IT will introduce a new ESA Request form, providing revised access types. This form is required to request faculty and staff access to CX (CARS), Novell, and other information systems. It is also required to change or remove access to these systems.
The granting of system access in a timely manner depends on thorough completion of the form. Incomplete forms will be returned and must be resubmitted with the missing information. Below is a list of key components needed in order to grant systems access to an employee.
- Systems Access - Supervisors must indicate which systems the employee will need access to. Be sure to check all that apply.
- CX (CARS) Personnel Record - HR, Academic Affairs, or other authorized administrative departments must input an employee record in CX (CARS) before IT can process any access requests.
- Signatures - Supervisor signature verifies that the request has been approved. Employee Signature verifies that the user acknowledges proper use of systems and data.
