Can we enroll today?
Iman Grewal
03:04:53
If we are already enrolled but changing employment category (Full-time lecturer to assistant professor) do we need to make any changes to our benefits or it stays as is?
Catherine Bohlen
03:06:46
Most benefits stay the same and transfer over. Once I process your change, I'll connect with you if there is anything you need to do.
Iman Grewal
03:07:13
Thanks Catherine
Joy Beatty
03:07:31

Is there a Domestic Partner Affidavit for someone with a significant other but not married?
RJ Koscielniak
03:10:56
I am FA and she doesn't have current coverage
Allison Piippo
03:15:28
Is this the same if we don't have a 100% appointment?
Catherine Bohlen
03:17:21
The match applies only to the Employee Classifications listed. If you are one of the E-classes, you can receive the match. If you are a LL (part time Lecturer) or an E-class that is not listed, there is no match, but you can contribute.
Allison Piippo
03:18:17
So, a PE with an 88.7% appointment would still receive the match?
Catherine Bohlen
03:20:20
Yes, it's based on your salary.
Allison Piippo
03:20:33
Ok, great! Thank you!

I am also a little worried about grading. At my previous institution there was a great variety in terms of faculty expectations for grades, and it led to students being upset and confused because work they submitted in one course was acceptable, while it was unacceptable in others.
Uttara Manohar
04:55:03
If a student stops participating in an online course midway and is not responding to emails/canvas notifications, what are some options to reach out to them?

When will we have access to our Canvas courses? Is this something that is automatically published? Or do we need to request them?
scox21@emich.edu
05:22:59
Sounds good
Sheila Longpré
05:44:41
Good point Amanda!
Moira Visovatti
05:45:00
Is there anyway to connect with students prior to the start of class (e.g. send email) through canvas?
Sheila Longpré
05:47:50

Fred - A few additional points I would share regarding discussions about disability … 1) if a student does disclose a disability with you, please do not share that information with other students and/or individuals who do not have a "need to know" and 2) if a student attempts to have a discussion with you regarding disabilities in a place or space where others are present, I would recommend pausing the conversation and stating that the environment may not be the best to have the conversation and it would be better to have it in a place were it is more private
