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.

UWG Toy Drive
UWG is collecting toys for Toys For Tots. On December 6, stop by the Alumni House and drop off a new, unwrapped toy and grab a cookie from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Also, bring your own camera for a photo with Santa and Mrs. Claus from 5-7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Termination Notification
When a faculty, staff, or temporary employee terminates employment with the university, department managers must complete the termination notification web form. The form must be submitted no later than 5 days after the termination date. This form also needs to be submitted within 30 days for employees who change departments on campus.
Retirees wishing to retain their email account should have their supervisor contact the Service Desk to request that the account be maintained past their retirement date.
