  • IT Advisories - Phishing email and Banner downtime

    There are two recent IT Advisories that USI faculty and staff are asked to be mindful of. 

    • USI Banner and related systems (Banner, Self-Service, BuyUSI, Xtender, Touchnet) will be unavailable to users after 5 p.m. Friday, September 17. IT will freeze census data for the fall term during this time. Systems are expected to be available again by 8 p.m. This downtime will NOT affect non-Banner systems such as Blackboard and DegreeWorks.
    • Phishing email remainder—Phishing is a type of online scam where criminals send an email that appears to be from a legitimate company and asks you to provide sensitive information. At USI, these phishing attempts increase at the start of a new semester. An email with tips to spot phishing emails and how to report them was sent to employees on Wednesday, September 15. Faculty and staff are asked to review this email, and if you have a suspicious email, report it by forwarding the phishing email to it@usi.edu (add "?phish" to the email subject line) for additional review.

  • USI Sexual Harassment Policy update

    The University of Southern Indiana is committed to providing a dynamic, intellectual and inclusive community and strives to maintain an environment that respects differences and provides a sense of belonging and inclusion for everyone. In furtherance of that commitment, USI has implemented policies which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual harassment in its educational programs and activities. 

    One such policy is the updated Sexual Harassment Policy, which codifies the requirements provided by the 2020 Final Rule under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. As articulated by the Office for Civil Rights, the regulations aim to provide a "fair, transparent process for investigating and adjudicating sexual harassment matters." USI asks campus community members to take a moment to review this policy. 

    Over the summer, USI created a campus-wide policy committee—comprised of members from the Title IX Office, Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, Human Resources, Public Safety and Legal Affairs—to review the existing policy and make changes as needed. This committee's recommended updates to the existing policy are summarized below: 

    • Creation of one all-encompassing policy that provides grievance procedures for both Title IX Related and Non-Title IX Related incidents that applies to both students and employees.
      • The Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy was not altered and will still apply to incidents that do not fall under the Sexual Harassment Policy. For example, complaints addressing discrimination based on pregnancy, different treatment based on sex or other forms of sex discrimination will not be adjudicated under the process provided in the Sexual Harassment Policy. 

    • Updated definitions of Prohibited Behaviors including:
      • hostile environment harassment
      • quid pro quo harassment
      • sexual assault (including rape, fondling, incest and statutory rape)
      • dating violence
      • domestic violence
      • stalking
      • sexual exploitation

    • Provided clarification that all non-confidential employees are Responsible Employees and MUST report all known information of sexual harassment to the Title IX Coordinator (contact information can be found on the USI Title IX website).

    • Added information regarding how to seek accommodations or interpretive services.

    • Provided greater clarity about the grievance process (for both Title IX and Non-Title IX Related Conduct) regarding the formal complaint, investigation and adjudication and appeal procedures.

    • Added information about resources, education, prevention efforts, training of Title IX Officials and recordkeeping.

    In addition to policy updates, the Title IX Office has been providing targeted outreach to all campus constituencies. To date, the office has trained or met with more than 30 campus groups, both student and employee. Similarly, all community members have been or will be assigned to complete an online training. For example, all students are assigned, encouraged and/or required to complete programs specific to sexual assault and prevention—first year students must complete their online training, "Building Supportive Communities: Clery Act and Title IX," which will be launched on September 8, 2021. 

    The University thanks the USI community for their commitment to providing an environment free from discrimination and harassment in which all of our community members can thrive. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like this office to provide targeted in-person outreach, please email either Interim Title IX Coordinator Beth Devonshire or Deputy Title IX Coordinator Dameion Doss.

  • Lend a helping wing to students quarantined on campus

  • What you need to know about Fall dining options

    Food venues around campus will begin opening soon as students move back on campus and classes start for the Fall Semester. However, changes will be made in some venue operations and hours in order to offer variety while anticipating the level of demand. These changes also will allow the Food Service staff to better serve the campus community, as staffing continues to be a challenge across the food service industry.

    Here’s what you need to know for the Fall Semester:

    • The Loft, located on the second floor of UC West, offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, and will fully reopen for the Fall Semester. The Loft will also return to having a full, self-service salad bar as part of its offerings. Additional sanitary precautions will be in place. Students with meal plans will be able to add a side salad to their entrée as one of the three sides and a drink included.

      In addition to healthy, homestyle meals at the Hometown station, The Loft’s LaCucina station will feature fully customizable individual pizza and pasta orders, including calzones and personal pizzas made on a new brick oven. Other options include Wok This Way’s custom stir-fries; Taste of the World’s rotating mix of international favorites; The Wrap, featuring made-to-order tortilla wrap sandwiches and a taco bar two days a week; and the USI Grille’s lineup of burgers, sandwiches and fries. Sushi, fresh fruit, soups, desserts and several drink choices round out The Loft options.

    • Students on the Red, White or Blue meal plans can utilize the Meal Exchange, which allows them to order at other retail locations after The Loft closes.

    • Red Mango will reopen for the Fall Semester from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. In addition to frozen yogurt, smoothies and acai bowls, Red Mango will feature items previously available at the Simply to Go location in The Link, such as pre-made sandwiches and salads, and sushi.

    • Sub Connection, Starbucks and Sweet Spot, on campus, and Archie’s Pizzeria and the Community Center Convenience Store, in Campus Housing, will all be open regular hours during the Fall Semester. Archie’s Pizzeria offers delivery daily from 3 to 9 p.m. Sushi will again be available at the C-Store and Sub Connection and can be ordered through Grubhub at the Sub Connection location.

    • Chick-Fil-A will open with a limited schedule for the start of the Fall Semester and is currently scheduled to close at 3 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and 4:30 p.m. Fridays during the school year. These hours can be extended if staffing needs are met. Students are encouraged to apply online by going to https://sodexo.jobs and entering ‘USI,’ and are eligible for a $300 sign-on bonus.

    • Cyclone Salads and Fiesta Fuego, located in UC East, will not open to start the Fall Semester. Salad, sandwich, sushi and Mexican cuisine, previously available at these locations, will be available in The Loft. The Link, located between the Nursing and Health Professions Center and the Science Center also will be closed during the Fall Semester. Some Simply to Go items, including sushi, will be available at Red Mango and Sub Connection. Student input will be gathered during the Fall Semester to determine if a desire exists to exchange one of the open venues with either Cyclone Salads or Fiesta Fuego.

    • All USI Dining locations will accept orders in-person and all locations will return to accepting cash in addition to credit cards, debit cards and Eagle Access Cards. Grubhub orders can be placed at Sub Connection, Starbucks and Archies Pizzeria. USI Dining is not limiting any menu offerings beyond what is required by the vendor or any possible supply chain shortages. All offerings and locations are subject to CDC, state and local guidance on COVID-19 safety, and offerings and hours are subject to change.

    More information about USI Dining, including hours for each dining location can be found online at https://usi.sodexomyway.com.

  • Internal department name changes

    The Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education has updated the name of the Mathematics department to Mathematical Sciences. This change is in line with peer institutions and is a better descriptor of the overall department, which has included a Statistics major since 2018. 

    This name change is one of several that have been completed in 2021: 

    Student Development Programs folded its orientation programs into a new unit called the New Student and Transitional Programs. This change brings the orientation programs held for new and transitional students, as well as specific programs for students' parents and guardians, under the new name.

    Effective July 2021, The Counseling Center will be renamed Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). The name change projects meaningfully the full scope of services the department offers and is a name that will be easier to recognize by students. 

    Also effective July 2021, Student Development Programs will be renamed to Center for Campus Life. Department members believe this name will project meaningful involvement, vibrant engagement and inclusive community development to new and returning students at USI. The name also bridges the gap between the Dean of Students Office and the former Student Development Programs.
