Kutztown University welcomes Jonathan Mooney on Oct. 9 -
Jonathan Mooney is a
writer and learning activist who did not learn to read until he was 12-years
old. Mooney will discuss how he didn’t let his dyslexia and attention deficit
hyperactivity get in the way of his success. Instead of letting his disorders
classify him as “not normal,” he now helps families of boys and girls who aren’t
problematic, but unique. For more information, please visit
Mooney will be speaking in the MSU183:
9:15 – 10:30 a.m. “The Gift: LD and ADHD Reframed”
11 a.m. – 12 p.m. “Re-Drawing The Lines Neurodiversity: A Compass to a Changing World”

As of Monday Oct. 1, the ESS leave request process has an additional screen that you must review before submitting your leave request. Please see the HR web page for more information: http://hr.dept.kutztown.edu/pdf/ESSEmployeeLeaveRequestChanges.pdf. This change does not pertain to faculty or SPFPA employees.
Also, we are excited to announce that, starting this year, you have the option to receive your W-2 electronically via Employee Self Service (ESS). Benefits of electronic delivery include:
• Faster delivery – receive your W-2 up to a week sooner than those that choose paper delivery.
• No possibility that your W-2 might be lost, stolen, delayed or misplaced by the U.S. postal service.
• The format of the online W-2 allows an employee to quickly and easily print, just like the current pay statement, in case a paper copy is needed.
• Access to view and print copies of your W-2/W-2c as often as needed, at your convenience.
More detailed information was sent out via email. Sign up until Dec. 15, via ESS at https://portal.passhe.edu/irj/portal. Please direct any questions to Ask HR: http://hr.dept.kutztown.edu/IssueSubmission.html.
