UWG sets fall record for
most degrees conferred!

The Work West Bulletin

The Work West Bulletin will provide you with the information you need to get through your work week. To more effectively communicate pertinent information, the Work West Bulletin replaces the Daily Report. This bulletin is a visually interactive way to share important dates, deadlines, policy changes, and training information all in one place. The Work West Bulletin will be published weekly on Mondays to all faculty and staff.

Items can be submitted to the bulletin via email: report@westga.edu. Bulletin announcements (100 words or less) should be submitted by noon on Thursday before the following Monday's publishing date. All other events should be submitted to the official university Events Calendar. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact UCM. We hope that you will find it helpful and informative. We look forward to continuing to improve how we share the great news of UWG with you.

On Tuesday December 27, the power to the majority of campus will be turned off for a period of 4-8 hours while work is done to energize the new electrical substation. The campus will be closed for the entire day so access to the buildings will not be allowed. In preparation for this power outage please do the following: turn your computer and other office equipment off before leaving for the holidays, and remove all food from refrigerators and defrost if necessary as the power will be off long enough to cause a refrigerator to defrost and allow water to get on the floor as the ice melts.

Starting December 12, Facilities will be working to connect the sidewalk from the corner of Front Campus Drive to Maple Street along University Drive at the flame. This work is expected to take a week, but it will depend on the weather. The exit from Front Campus will remain accessible, but please use caution and obey flagmen signals in the area.

Mark your calendars for the next LDI dates:
