Visit UIT for computer support. They can help you order computers, set up your email, etc…
You need to sign up for an exchange account and a science account and forward your exchange stuff to science. Exchange gives you a voicemail and calendar, Science gives you more space for your actual emails.
Best to go visit COSINE and have them set this up as there are interesting features in forwarding from exchange to science.
You need to - at the minimum - do safety awareness for non-lab employees. If you are using labs/equipment, visit the department safety page.
The Dept. Admin Assistant will get you key authorization, you then walk that over to get your actual key. Faculty need the “faculty master” and a building key.
Rules and regulations
To have anything to do with student records, you need to complete FERPA training. Go to myosu.oreognstate.edu, choose Employee and look for FERPA in the column on the right.
The office assistant needs to request this. It takes a while.
We have a color printer and the copier in the Dept. office. There are also printers in many of the teaching labs. COSINE can set you up to use them.
