HR/CMS Upgrade

We are pleased to pass along that HR/CMS is scheduled for an upgrade.

Beginning May 16th, self-service employees and approvers will experience the modern, tile-based navigation. With just one click, users can get to key functionalities like timesheets, personal details, payroll and announcements.

Approvers will see a more streamlined time approval approach. The Manager Work Center has additional new features to access information about your direct reports.

Before the upgrade is implemented, you will be notified of the improvements and the new look and feel.

Pictured above are sneak peaks of the new log in page and the Employee & Manager Self Service pages.

Stay tuned for more information!

Navigate Weekly Workshops

We’ve got two new workshops this week: Availability Tune-up: Getting Ready for Appointment Scheduling and Advanced Advising and the power of the “Path” Tab.

Learn more about how Navigate can help you support students at one of these upcoming sessions.

 Availability Tune-up: Getting Ready for Appointment Scheduling

In this workshop you will get the chance to review the availability settings and options to make sure that students can find you when they need you (and won’t find you when you are not around). Review the services you are available for, select specific types of availability (drop-in, by appointment, or by invitation), and learn how to create a Personalized Availability Link (or PAL).

Advanced Advising and the power of the “Path” Tab

Discover this powerful resource that will help you get to know your students better. Learn what your students need, where they are on their path, and what they consider their strengths and superpowers.

Welcome to the
Equality & Equity Project

 As part of our commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, the Equality & Equity Project will provide historical and present-day information about the contributions, challenges, culture, and daily lives of the many vital groups that make up our NSCC community, and the larger world.

We invite you to visit often, reflect on what you see and read, discuss it with others and, hopefully, expand your knowledge base, appreciation, and understanding of groups beyond your own.

May Deep Dive:

The sacred Lakota mountain called The Six Grandfathers, was appropriated to become Mount Rushmore. Mount Rushmore's creator had ties with white supremacy groups.

Think About This:

Sarah Boone was an African American dressmaker who made her name by inventing the modern-day ironing board. In her patent application, she wrote that the purpose of her invention was "to produce a cheap, simple, convenient and highly effective device, particularly adapted to be used in ironing the sleeves and bodies of ladies' garments." With its approval in 1892, Boone became one of the first African American women to be awarded a patent.

If you have any questions or comments on NSCC's Equality & Equity Project, please contact us at EqualityEquity@northshore. edu
