looks like we are good!
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
22:08
it *is* cold out :P
Derek Bastille
27:57
*sigh* I wish we weren't using TKLs for this :-P
Derek Bastille
29:44
With all the uncertainty, 60% seems pretty good at this point
Mathew Mund (He, Him, His)
39:28
Can I get a list of who is transitioning out of Staff Council?
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
42:26
my bad Shannon!
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
42:32
I didn't see your hand up!
Juella Sparks, UAF
44:23
Me too Shannon!
Julie Queen
45:27
UAF is offering a free public clinic for vaccinations, today and tomorrow in the Patter Center from 12-8pm. All types, while supplies last, including pediatric, boosters, initial or secondary doses, and standard flu shots.
Ronnie Houchin (he/him)
46:16
Thanks, Julie!
Derek Bastille
46:43
Thanks, Julie! Is this a walk in thing for the Flu shot? Or did we need to get an appt?
Julie Queen
46:58
No appointments needed (by my understanding).
Julie Queen
47:36
Yes - just looked, it is "drop-in".
Ronnie Houchin (he/him)

Long COVID has been recognized as a disability under ADA: https://www.ada.gov/long_covid_joint_guidance.pdf?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=

Derek Bastille
01:22:05
have gotten several nominations for new honorees for the rural employee spotlight
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
01:22:15
that's awesome!
Courtney
01:23:55
Tara is a rockstar
Derek Bastille
01:24:27
Oops! sorry, I typed that in in chat when it was for my notes :-) Kudos to rural affairs
Derek Bastille
01:36:26
HR coordinators for each TKL vs statewide HR
Raina Collins
01:37:34
agreed Juella, that's a critical component of this whole issue!
Derek Bastille
01:37:43
Hiring training used to be pushed down to the HR PPAs at larger UAF departments to lessen the number of things that go thru central HR. This is in work, I think, but I don't know how much authority/responsibility the coordinators will ultimately have
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
01:40:08
heck it's not easy for us old timers :P
Courtney
01:44:37
Ohhh! I love that idea
Jo Malbert Narvaez (he/him, they/them)
01:46:13
Can you remind us when is Staff Recognition and Development Day?
Juella Sparks, UAF
01:46:24
We’ve not set a date yet.
Juella Sparks, UAF
01:46:51
We are still working to find a date to share with UAA, UAS and system office
Jo Malbert Narvaez (he/him, they/them)
01:47:07
Thank you
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
01:49:36
I'm just messing with you Ronnie ;)
Raina Collins
01:49:37
😂
Derek Bastille
01:49:56
Polar bear with bunny boots and a shovel
Juella Sparks, UAF
01:50:40
Polar bear with forget-me-nots and bug spray!
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
01:51:58
polar bear in a snowstorm? :P
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
01:53:00
props to Raina for heading it up!
Raina Collins
01:53:18
👍🏼🙂
Juella Sparks, UAF
01:53:25
Yay Raina!!
Derek Bastille
02:00:21
One question that I have had from folks working on the data for this is: why 2027? That is not a 5 year boundary, but is far enough out that any estimates are close to voodoo
Juella Sparks, UAF
02:06:02
Guilty of that!!
Juella Sparks, UAF
02:06:12
Go Derek!
Raina Collins
02:06:27
Yes, what Derek said!!!
Juella Sparks, UAF
02:06:54
Derek for Governor 2022!!!!
Courtney
02:07:29
You and Michael have great questions and observations, Derek
Ronnie Houchin (he/him)
02:07:53
2027 was chosen because it aligns with the date for the ANSI Strategic Plan
Derek Bastille
02:08:05
Ahh.. thanks!
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
02:08:13
how allied with ANSI is this Goals and Measures?
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
02:08:27
I did notice a mention of grants related to ANSI in section 4
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
02:08:36
er section 5
Ronnie Houchin (he/him)
02:08:44
I think it’s fairly connected, at least from the System Office perspective
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
02:11:53
we're looking for a liaison/resolution office of a sort
Ronnie Houchin (he/him)
02:12:49
Here’s an example: https://ombuds.oregonstate.edu/what-ombuds
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
02:13:15
Ronnie ahead of me there woo :D
Mathew Mund (He, Him, His)
02:14:48
I support an Ombuds Office under the presidents office (or chancellors office).
Derek Bastille
02:19:44

Ronnie Houchin (he/him)
02:20:27
Thank you, Derek!
Mathew Mund (He, Him, His)
02:20:37
Is Staff Emeritus to be used for recognition or if they have an unofficial UAF role after they retire?
Mathew Mund (He, Him, His)
02:20:48
Can we decide what we would prefer for staff
Derek Bastille
02:23:53
So all of the emerita are listed at: https://www.uaf.edu/commence/archives.php including some staff emerita. Unfortunately they are not dented as staff or faculty
Derek Bastille
02:24:01
like https://www.uaf.edu/commence/files/2021/emeriti/riley.php

See R04.07.095. Emeritus Status, Staff
Kiana Carr (proxy for Stacey Schmitt)
02:27:03
Were those recorded?
Mathew Mund (He, Him, His)
02:28:17
The Touchcare sessions appeared to be well attended. Perhaps this was partially because of the $50.00 gift card giveaway.
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
02:28:35
I don't think they were recorded
Mathew Mund (He, Him, His)
02:28:38
Perhaps HR should incentives their trainings.
Derek Bastille
02:28:44
Food!
Jessica Slavik
02:30:23
I didn't attend because I wasn't sure what they covered. so some additional information about what each topic is actually about (because the session names sound targeted to supervisors)
Raina Collins
02:30:24
yes, they need to work on availability
Michael Szidloski II (he/him/his)
02:30:25
that was a discussion we had raised in the conversation
Courtney
02:30:55
Agreed, Jessica. Better information would boost attendance, I think
Derek Bastille
02:34:29
There are many structural changes proposed in the report & those frequently are the things kicked down the road
