Under an agreement between applicable public employee unions and the State of New York, a program has been established where vacation time can be donated across unions to those who have exhausted their sick leave. On the Oneonta campus, Jeanne Clink, CSEA, has exhausted her sick leave accruals. Any member of the UUP bargaining unit who accrues vacation leave can donate vacation days to Jeanne Clink so long as they maintain a balance of 10 vacation days after donated days are deducted from their balances. The identity of donors remains confidential.
If you are interested in donating any accruals to Jeanne Clink, please contact the Office of Human Resources at x2509. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.
[UUP Chapter President’s Note: Although Academic and Professional members of the UUP bargaining unit can receive Leave Donation, only Professionals and Librarians in the UUP bargaining unit as well as those in other participating unions can donate Leave Donation. This process transcends union lines: for example, the situation below involves a CSEA member. The only restriction in regard to UUP is that this agreement is limited to the Professionals as academic leave in UUP is calculated in a different manner. Please read the material below and consider making a Leave Donation. To make a donation, contact the Human Resources Office. Undoubtedly there will come times when donations will be solicited on behalf of members of the UUP bargaining unit. Always friendly and helpful to everyone, Jeanne Clink, of our Purchasing Department and formerly of the Mail Room as well as part of the CSEA bargaining unit, has exhausted her leave accruals. Jeanne is the mother of a SUNY Oneonta History major, Samantha. The entire Clink family — Jeanne, Clarence, Joshua, and Samantha — express thanks and appreciation for your help. UUP also thanks you for considering this request.]
This semester, twenty-one students in SPAN394 have been learning about and planning community service projects that they will be conducting over spring break in San Andrés, Colombia, a small island in the western Caribbean. Maria Montoya, Assistant Professor in Foreign Languages and Literatures, designed the course. She and Carol Dean, Assistant Professor in Secondary Education, will accompany the students on the trip.
While on San Andrés, students will interact with youth groups and senior citizens in various communities across the island through workshops they have designed as part of the course, learn from the service they will be providing for those in need, and speak Spanish.! The students are currently item raising and seeking contributions from the College community to accomplish the service projects they have planned. If you would like to donate any school supplies, sports equipment (used or new), board games, or personal hygiene products, you can bring them to the Foreign Language Department, Schumacher 300, or e-mail Dr. Montoya at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pick-up.
