CHANGES AT EH&S

It is with mixed emotions that we inform you that David Smith, Director, Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S), will be leaving the University of South Florida to relocate and accept another position. His last day will be July 5th. David joined USF in March of 2000 as a Health Physicist (Radiation Safety Specialist) in Research Compliance. He moved on to progressively responsible positions within EH&S including his current position of providing campus and USF System-wide leadership as the Director. We thank David for his leadership over EH&S as well as within the Administrative Services unit. Please join us in wishing David and his family the very best in all future endeavors.

 

We are pleased to announce that Beverly Douglas will be serving as the Interim Director. We are confident she will nicely compliment the strong management team in place at EH&S and look forward to her guidance and leadership as we move forward. Beverly has a strong management and leadership portfolio and has served as a valued member of the Administrative Services leadership team for the last three years. Please join us in welcoming Beverly to her new role.

EXCELLENCE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE

ERCGlen Aleo, Assistant Manager, Building & Maintenance, Physical Plant and his maintenance team, George Cua, Jim Niblett, Hank Beggs, Bradley Orr, Clint Franklin and Pooran Partap, were treated to a "thank you" lunch Friday, June 7th, by the director, teachers and children at the Educational Research Center (preschool on campus). The children painted a mural in appreciation for all the work Glen and his team does for them.

Congratulations to Glen and his team on being recognized for their outstanding customer service.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU

We want to extend a special "thank you" to all the Administrative Services employees who worked tirelessly to insure our campus was looking its very best when the Florida Board of Governors visited USF last week. The campus was picture perfect for these very important guests. In a letter sent by USF President Judy Genshaft immediately following the event she said, "We received positive comments throughout the three days from the BOG as well as many participants who attended the sessions. I truly believe all left VERY impressed with our tremendous university!"

ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN HITS GOAL!

The USF 2012-2013 Faculty & Staff Annual Fund Campaign achieved its goal of 42% participation. In addition, the Campaign achieved an all-time high in the number of donors – 2,890. Thank you to all the "unstoppable" employees who participated in this year's campaign. Sandy Lovins, Vice President Administrative Services, is excited to announce that Administrative Service exceeded its goal of 35% - coming in at 36% participation. She said, "This was a HUGE success that contributed to pushing the University over its all-time high. USF is rocking the nation in its contribution level from employees. Your generosity will make a tremendous difference in providing continuing support to the many programs that benefit USF faculty and staff. Thank you for your participation."

THINK SAFE – BE SAFE

July4The Fourth of July holiday should be a time of fun and celebration; however, it can also be one of the most dangerous times of the year. Each year, a lack of firework safety causes thousands of major and minor injuries and even a small amount of deaths. Many of these injuries could have been prevented through foresight and firework safety training. For a safe Independence Day, take time to educate yourself and others about the risk associated with fireworks.

 

For more tips on staying safe (boating, swimming, barbecuing, etc.) on July 4th, be sure to check out this website. This website also provides Fun Facts and more about Independence Day.

 

 

USF TRADITIONS

the fingers on your hand create a powerful symbol that silently screams: "Go Bulls!" This tradition first started as a good luck symbol for basketball free-throw shots. The hand symbol is now used as the premier USF cheering and greeting symbol.
