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: 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.

* The Row Hall west wing elevator tower remains closed. Visitors to Row Hall should use the stairs. Additional ADA parking will be made available at the front of the building on University Drive.

Due to restroom renovation in Cobb Hall, 9 parking spaces on Front Campus Drive will be blocked in order to be used for dumpsters and support of the construction activities. These spaces are located on the west side of Cobb Hall and directly across from the service and handicapped spaces. It is anticipated that the construction on this side of the building will last a few more weeks.

* Policy/Procedure Development Comment Period
UWG has implemented a new process that allows faculty, staff, and students to review and comment on draft policies and some procedures before they become official. A comment period gives you the opportunity to have a voice in the development of those policies that may affect you as part of the campus community.

The Policy Committee has completed its draft on the First Amendment and Protected Activity on Campus procedures for the institution. It can be accessed on the Policies for Comment webpage through October 14.

Once you have reviewed the document, you may send any comments to

Mark your calendars for the next LDI dates:
  • Friday, November 4, 2016
  • Friday, February 10, 2017
  • Friday, May 5, 2017

* Campus Center ID Policy
In compliance with the University of West Georgia Student and Employee Handbooks, all students, faculty, and staff must have their UWG ID card to enter controlled access within the Campus Center. This includes both recreational & event space behind the turnstiles as well as the climbing wall and game room. Please keep in mind the impact that this has on meetings held in rooms 302 & 303.

The first two times that a patron forgets their card, they will receive a forgotten card warning linked to their account but will still be granted access. On the third violation, patrons will not be granted access.

* Temporary Closure
The Office of International Student Admissions and Programs will be closed on Friday, October 7, due to a student leadership retreat.

* Volunteer for ADAY
Each year, the Office of Annual Giving hosts ADAY, an annual Fall tradition that engages faculty, staff, the community, students, and alumni in an effort to give back, and show our UWG pride. ADAY is on October 20 this year. If you are interested in volunteering, please email James Tyson or call 9-4117.

* Class Schedule
The Spring 2017 schedule of classes is now available.
