We’re Looking for Talent: Open Mic Night, 4/5

Can you sing? Play and instrument? Write poetry? PACE is currently looking for anyone interested in performing April 5 at an open mic night in the Mchsea Commons from 6-7:30 pm to raise awareness about mental health. 

We are also accepting personal stories about students struggles with mental health in any regard. These stories will be read at the open mic night but the student will remain anonymous. 

If you have interest in performing or to submit a story contact Jordan Loeb at jl4745@desales.edu.

New Payroll Self-Service Registration Instructions

As some of you may be aware, the University has begun to transition to a new payroll and human resources platform with JetPay.  As part of this transition, you will need to re-enroll in Employee Self Service. To do this, please follow the Employee Self Service Portal Instructions to view pay advices beginning with the February 28 pay period. 

You will receive an e-mail from jetpay@myisolved.com on March 1 to use as part of these instructions; it is a legitimate e-mail (not spam) and contains a link that will expire in 72 hours, so you should use the link ASAP.

Once full implementation of this new platform is completed over the next few months, employees will be able to complete the annual benefits open enrollment on-line as well as view items such as your Form W-2, so keep watching the Daily for progress updates and announcements of newly available features.

Questions?  Contact Human Resources at x1660 or Payroll at x1256.
