Clery Act presentation for all campus advisors
Are you a club advisor?
Do you supervise any student staff?
Do you have significant interaction with students daily? 
If any or all of these descriptions apply to you, then you are a responsible employee and need to attend a presentation by Lindsey Dreiling and Amy Sellers on the Clery Act & Title IX. 

Presented on Tuesday, October 6 at 1 p.m. in the College Center Conference Room. This informational training will help you know how to handle those difficult conversations with students that you might not know whether you need to inform someone else or not.

Please email Amy Sellers at amyeb@k-state.edu if you have any additional questions.  

Fall shred day information
An annual Fall Shred Day is sponsored on the K-State Salina campus to properly dispose of university paper records.  The 2015 Fall Shred Day collection will be 8:30 -11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6, in the service and delivery area behind the Technology Center building.  Departments can place paper documents with personal identity information - Social Security numbers, birth dates, credit card numbers, etc. - in bags or boxes and deliver to the collection area.  Please do not leave the materials to be shredded unattended.

Documents for shredding include: Scantron forms; greenbar grade sheets; rosters printed from K-State Online, kSIS, SIS, etc.; papers with personal identity information; data with credit card information; personnel files; and more. Papers can be left in ring binders, file folders and hanging file folders for shredding. All paper must be dry. For a quick look at retention of documents:
* Personnel records should be retained for the entire time the employee is active and then five years after termination.
* Appointment records: Classified, unclassified, hourly and graduate student appointment and termination records (PER-38, PER-39, PER 40, PER-41, PER-42); conditional appointment agreement; I-9 employment eligibility form 5AT/D.
* Time and leave records: Classified, unclassified, student, and hourly time-worked and leave-used records 5/D.

To determine which records can be included, please refer to the university's records retention policy and schedule, PPM Chapter 3090. If you have any questions about the retention length of records, please contact university archivist Cliff Hight at chight@k-state.edu or 785-532-3420.

What happens to the paper once it leaves campus? All paper is shred to one-half inch particulate size, then mixed and tumbled and eventually compressed under 70,000 pounds of pressure into paper bales. The bales are transported to a paper mill and recycled into other paper goods. For more information about this event, contact:
* Salina campus:  Information Systems, 785-826-2666

Shred day is made possible with the help from the Information Technology Assistance Center on the Manhattan Campus.

Avionics student presents summer internship experience and future opportunities to fellow students
Sandra Anderson, a senior in avionics with her A&P certificate, interned with the Cessna Flight Club this summer and is now helping on the weekends as an Avionics Technician for Textron as a result. On Sept. 24, Sandra gave a presentation on her experience to Drew Smith's Aircraft Standards class (AVM 131). The biggest piece of advice she wanted to convey to students is to take every opportunity that you can, because there are a lot of aviation internships and jobs available if you look for them. Once students get their foot in the door of the aviation industry, Sandra says, they can go multiple places, gain a lot of experience, and land exactly where they want to be. 




K-State Salina at the Aircraft Electronics Association Regional Meeting

Ten K-State Salina students attended the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) Regional Meeting in Kansas City, Missouri. These are two day meetings, in which AEA notifies it's members about regulation changes and training sessions from various aviation electronic companies.  

The students that attended from campus represented three bachelor's programs: avionics, unmanned aircraft systems, and aviation maintenance management.  Attending the AEA regional meeting allowed the students to network, attend training and take their National Center for Aerospace & Transportation Technologies (NCATT) exams.

NCATT is supported by industry in certifying individuals in certain areas of expertise. The foreign object elimination (FOE) is a certificate that is sought after by industry for employees to understand how to keep foreign object hazards out of the work place. Another certification is the aircraft electronics technician (AET) certificate which is a basic certificate about electronics in aviation.  Once one has their AET, they can add additional endorsements that encompass more in depth focuses of the aircraft. The last certificate was the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) certificate which is a certification for UAS maintainers that was developed with general atomics. 

Here is a list of students that attended the conference and received certifications: 
Matt Tener:  FOE
Tim Bruner: AET and Autonomous Navigation Systems endorsement
Maria Gonzalez: FOE
Davin Perry: FOE
Nicolas Rainford: UAS maintenance certificate

If you have any questions, contact Raylene Alexander, associate professor, at raylene@ksu.edu.

New campus club makes debut at Aggieville Mini Maker Faire
A new student club on campus, the Innovative Manufacturing Club, was at the Aggieville Mini Maker Faire a few weeks ago showing cutting edge technology, specifically 3D printing! Check out their prosthetic hand for a child, the M&M computer controlled dispenser and printed Minecraft figures with LED lights. The purpose of the club is to research and to design cutting-edge technology in and through additive manufacturing. They are currently researching 3d printing and ways to advance that technology.


A high-five is one of the most recognizable ways two people can share excitement or celebrate a job well done. K-State Salina's CEO and Dean Verna Fitzsimmons awards her high-five each week to honor faculty, staff and students for their dedication to the university.

High-Five to Women in Aviation!
A big high-five goes out to our Women in Aviation campus club who hosted "Girls in Aviation" this past weekend. More than 30 young women were on campus Saturday morning for the event. Attendees learned how to build a mock airplane wing, flew airplane and UAS simulators, toured the flight line and and spoke with three K-State Salina women alumni - a military pilot, a Delta Airlines pilot and an employee of the FAA.

Thanks to everyone involved with hosting such a great event, and inspiring the next generation of women aviators


High-Five to Baja SAE club and UAS club!
A big thank you to our Baja SAE student club and the UAS student club for representing the campus this past weekend in the Smoky Hill Museum parade and street fair. We're always excited to show the Salina community what this campus has to offer!
