Expansion of Our Campus Carry-in/Carry-out Recycling Program

As a result of our success with the sustainable practice of our carry-in/carry-out program instituted throughout our classrooms in our academic facilities, we are excited to announce we will expand the program to include all conference rooms, kitchen/prep areas, and lounges in academic facilities. Not only will it help promote proper recycling of materials, it will reduce cost through reduction in supplies and labor while at the same time establishing a sustainable practice that supports both the environment through proper recycling and realizing a measurable cost savings for Geneseo.

Signage will be posted to indicate areas of carry-in/carry-out to promote the expansion of the program and to encourage participation of “all” who utilize our campus facilities.

Once again our Housekeeping department is proud to introduce the expansion of this program in support of the University’s commitment to sustainable practices as a signatory to the President’s Climate Commitment Act signed by past President, Dr. Dahl, as of June 26, 2007. In doing so, the College is committed to calculating our greenhouse gas footprint, setting a date for carbon neutrality and establishing an action plan for achieving that goal.

Internal Control is Everyone's Responsibility

In compliance with the State Governmental Accountability, Internal Audit and Control Act of 1987, the enclosed brochure is part of the College’s legally required, continuous program of internal controls training for all employees.

      The five specific objectives of Geneseo’s Internal Control program are the:
    • Coordinated achievement of the College’s Mission;
    • Accurate capture, maintenance, and dissemination of institutional data;
    • Safeguarding of assets – including provisions for a disaster plan;
    • Ensuring that programs and operations remain effective and efficient; and,
    • Compliance with applicable laws, regulations, policies, and guidelines.

    SUNY Geneseo is committed to ensuring its funds and other resources are used in a proper and efficient manner. A “Hotline” has, therefore, been established to provide the user a completely confidential way to report any areas of concern regarding internal controls in their department or throughout the college. For more information, go to Geneseo’s Internal Control website at http://internalcontrol.geneseo.edu. The Hotline is accessed by clicking the Report Fraud menu item on the left.

    If you have any questions regarding the Internal Control Program, please contact Brice Weigman in the Internal Control Office at 245-5606 or my office at 245-5601.

    Revised Policy- Student Employment

    Human Resources & Payroll Services has revised the Geneseo Student Employment Handbook and Policy to align with the SUNY Student Assistant Positions Policy and the Affordable Care Act. The policy is effective January 1, 2015.

    Revision Highlights:

    • Student employees will be limited to 29 hours or less per week at all times, including summer and semester breaks. However, International students are limited per USCIS regulations to working no more than 20 hours per week.

    • Student must be registered for a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester (half-time equivalent status) to be eligible to work as a student employee.

    • All students are now limited to ONE on campus temp service job. However, students who currently have commitments from departments for this entire academic year may maintain more than one temp service position for the remainder of this academic year. It is imperative that the combination of hours between the jobs not go over 29 hours during a work week. Beginning fall semester 2015, students will not be able to accept more than one temp service position.

    We realize some the changes will create difficulties for departments; however, we need to comply with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Please feel free to email questions to the Payroll Services inbox at payroll@geneseo.edu.
