Student Life Rec Sports Director Don Stenta has been appointed At-Large Director of NIRSA (Leaders in Collegiate Recreation). “Don’s passion for leadership development, professional development, and public policy align with strategic priorities for the Association in the next few years,” says Stan Shingles, Assistant Vice President at Central Michigan University and 2015-2016 NIRSA President. “He brings experience related to key areas of NIRSA’s strategic plan to the table, and his continued tenure on the Board as At-Large Director is a real strength since a core tenet of ‘Future First Governance’ is to avoid a majority of the NIRSA Board turning over each year.”

To better track and respond to Student Life staff technology requests, Technology Services has adopted a new support system, routing staff questions/requests more quickly and providing greater visibility to Student Life staff making these requests. 

What you will see in Remedyforce now is meant only to replace the Web Request Form “Technology Support Request” found on the Student Life home page and on the SLTS website.  Other new request forms (such as Computer Account and Hardware/Software Purchase) will be piloted at a later date.  Note that there is a large button labelled “View Tickets and Requests”. If you select that button you will see a list of the incidents that you have submitted with basic information, and if you select an incident number you will see details, attachments and notes as entered. 

More information is online.
