Policy for uncovered windows

College Council passed the following policy on Sept. 8, 2016. Based upon expressed concern from our insurance company, the Department of Safety and employees, the College is implementing a policy that requires all employees to avoid covering windows on doors.

Policy: For safety, security and professional liability purposes, all office and workspace door windows must be kept clear, fully accessible and free of any covering. The only offices that may have their door windows covered are the following confidential offices:

  1. Counseling offices in the Counseling Center, located in the Engle Health Center
  2. Health rooms in the Engle Health Center
  3. The College Pastor in the College Ministries Office
  4. The employee meeting space in the Office of Human Resources

Covering a door window may reduce or eliminate an employee’s access to professional liability coverage provided by the College’s insurance policy.

Practice: If the window on the door of the office or area to which you have been assigned is covered, and the covering was not installed nor approved by the College, please fully remove all covering and maintain the area accordingly. Department of Safety and Facility Maintenance staff will periodically check all office door windows. Any violations of this policy will be reported to the Office of Human Resources and Compliance and the window coverings will be removed. If you supervise students, please provide them with guidance on complying with this policy. Questions or concerns should be directed to the director of safety and administrative services (lmaynard@messiah.edu) and/or the vice president for human resources and compliance (acoffey@messiah.edu).

Rationale: Windows on doors have been identified as a safety best practice and prudent course of action for all professionals who meet individually with students. Likewise, in the event of a building evacuation, windows on doors allow the Department of Safety to more quickly assess occupancy. The College has been working steadily to install windows on doors throughout campus. Covering the window obviously negates the safety features of having a window. Our insurance broker has expressed concern that we do not have a policy prohibiting covered door windows and has noted that a significant number of employees do, in fact, cover the windows on their doors. The insurance company has clearly expressed that they reserve the right to limit professional liability coverage for employees who cover door windows. Please see the frequently asked questions here.

Ravi Scott Jain’s lecture “From Wonder to Wisdom” September 2

The picture of contemporary science is dominated by the imaginary of classical physics which envisions a law-governed universe in which passive particles bounce around impacting one another. But this picture of mechanistic atomism has two big problems.

  1. It is and always has been on a crash course with the humanities through its diminution of qualities to secondary status.
  2. Astonishingly modern physics no longer holds to this classical imaginary and so this collision between natural science and the humanities is not a necessary one. Surprisingly, recovering natural science as part of the traditional liberal arts curriculum offers a picture of reality which more easily comports both with contemporary scientific inquiry as well as theology and the humanities.

Ravi Scott Jain will explore how the traditional categories of natural philosophy and the common arts (think technology) better situate our natural scientific endeavors on the arc from wonder to wisdom, may culminate in worship, and do not sacrifice the ability to do work.

Here is his bio: Ravi Jain graduated from Davidson College with a BA and interests in physics, ancient Greek, and international political economy. He worked at various churches, received an M.A. from Reformed Theological Seminary, and later earned a Graduate Certificate in Mathematics from the University of Central Florida. He began teaching calculus and physics at the Geneva Classical Christian School in 2003 where he has developed an integrated double period class called “The Scientific Revolution.” In this class the students read primary sources like Galileo and Newton in order to recapitulate the narrative of discovery while preserving the mathematical and scientific rigor expected of a college level treatment. During his tenure there he coauthored “The Liberal Arts Tradition: A Philosophy of Christian Classical Education.” He has given over 50 talks and workshops throughout the country and overseas on topics related to education, mathematics, and science. He will give the talk and then we will discuss. Pizza will be served. (first come, first served for the pizza.) It is a regular meeting of the philosophy club. No tickets are needed. Anyone is welcome.

Hamon was nominated for this national recognition by Erin Boyd-Soisson and four of her former students. Dr. Khaw from Montclair University and Committee Chair noted that “The Berardo Award Committee was particularly struck by the way Hamon’s nominators described her as an inspiring and visionary leader, mentor, and teacher who is fully committed to advancing students’ careers and maximizing their potentials (and who tirelessly finds ways to pave opportunities for them to do so). We were equally impressed by her roles as a fierce advocate of the family science field through her dedication to Family Life Education and her initiative which led to the establishment of the NCFR Honors Recognition Program.”

Graduate student Caitlin Copus presented her thesis at Central Penn College on Thursday, Aug. 11. Caitlin is a Master of Arts in Higher Education student with a concentration in Academic Support Services. Her thesis was on course registration. Her abstract was as follows: Course registration is a fundamental but complex process that happens at essentially every college and university. Most colleges have open registration periods when students are encouraged to register for classes, and faculty and administrators examine registration patterns to decide to cancel course sections or open additional course sections to meet student demand. Because the information obtained during registration is useful, it would be helpful to many faculty and administrators if all students registered for classes during the suggested periods. Students who register on time also stand to benefit from the greatest possible selection of course options. Despite these benefits, many students register for classes late. This presentation examined the current body of literature surrounding course registration and then described a quantitative study that was completed to find results about hypotheses describing why students register for classes late. A discussion about the findings of the study followed, and suggestions for current practice and further research concluded the presentation.

RightNow Media offered free to all employees

Messiah College has subscribed to RightNow Media to make this library of video resources available free of charge to interested students, employees, parents and alumni of the college. RightNow Media provides a range of resources–entertainment, bible study materials, conference keynote addresses, sermons, ministry training, children’s videos, etc. This resource is being offered through a generous gift to the college so that you can enjoy these resources without any cost to you or your family. On June 1, you should have received an introductory email from RightNow Media that would allow you to sign-up for this online resource. They also sent out three reminder emails. Some employees thought it may have been a hoax and others saw this email in their junk folder. It is not; over 1,130 members of the Messiah community have already signed up for this free service. Please note that making these resources available to the Messiah community does not implicitly or explicitly suggest that the College endorses the content or perspectives presented by every resource. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email jmcclymont@messiah.edu.

The preferred method for making room reservations is by using Virtual EMS. The volume of room reservation requests that are emailed through roomres@messiah.edu do not allow for these requests to be answered in a timely manner. Therefore, these types of requests can be delayed by several days. Virtual EMS requests take priority over all other requests. If you need a Virtual EMS account, please log on to the website http://ems.messiah.edu/virtualems. When asked for your “User ID” and “Password,” use your normal network prompts, then click “Login.” You should see your status as pending.

    • Motorists must stop at least 10 feet away from school buses that have red lights flashing and stop arm extended.
    • Motorists must stop when they are behind a bus, meeting the bus or approaching an intersection where a bus is stopped with red lights flashing and stop arm extended.
    • Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety.
    • Do not proceed until all the children have reached a place of safety.
    • If physical barriers such as grassy medians, guide rails or concrete median barriers separate oncoming traffic from the bus, motorists in the opposing lanes may proceed without stopping. This is the only time a motorist does not have to stop for a stopped school bus.

The penalties, if convicted, of violating Pennsylvania´s School Bus Stopping Law include:

    • $250 fine
    • Five points on your driving record
    • 60-day license suspension
    • A lifetime of regret if a child is injured!

New student orientation and Welcome Week 2016 begins August 25

Under Construction is this year’s theme for Welcome Week 2016. Messiah College is excited to welcome our incoming first-year and transfer students as they begin their orientation on Thursday, Aug. 25. You can visit www.messiah.edu/welcomeweek to see the full five-day orientation agenda that they will follow. Every employee will receive a handout via campus mail early next week that you can carry with you and use as a reference tool if you will be on campus on Aug. 25. You may encounter new students and their families that have questions about where they need to be, who they need to contact, etc. This is a very handy guide. Any questions about the activities on Aug. 25 can be directed to the office of Student Involvement and Leadership Programs, ext. 5240 or silp@messiah.edu.

Virtual EMS – room scheduling software

The preferred method for making room reservations is by using Virtual EMS. The volume of room reservation requests that are emailed through roomres@messiah.edu do not allow for these requests to be answered in a timely manner. Therefore, these types of requests can be delayed by several days. Virtual EMS requests take priority over all other requests. If you need a Virtual EMS account, please log on to the website http://ems.messiah.edu/virtualems. When asked for your “User Id” and “Password”, use your normal network prompts, then click “Login”. You should see your status as pending. Contact me at rheintze@messiah.edu to let me know you have an account pending and I’ll finish the process of creating your account.
