1.    Have You Finished Your GPS Online Performance Appraisal Yet?

The goal for most of the university’s staff and their supervisors is to complete the GPS performance appraisal process for 2014 by the end of February 2015. If you need some help using the online tool, we still have more sessions of our interactive GPS workshops scheduled throughout February. Here are the dates and times:

Thursday, February 12        1:30 to 3:00 p.m.
Monday, February 16          9:30 to 11:00 a.m.
Wednesday, February 18     1:30 to 3:00 p.m.
Tuesday, February 24          9:30 to 11:00 a.m.
Thursday, February 26         1:30 to 3:00 p.m.

To register, send an email to with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your phone extension
  • The name, date and time of the program for which you wish to register.
You will receive an email with the location of the workshop several days before the program.

Once you’re done with the 2014 appraisal process, it might be a good idea to review your position description (PD) with your supervisor. Read more here the PD tool in this past Spotlight article.

2.    Tuition Benefits for Dependent Children

Do you have a son or daughter who was accepted to Lehigh for undergraduate study during the most recent early acceptance period? If so, congratulations! Now we need to hear from you.

Contact Betty Konczyk via email or at extension 82952 as soon as possible. She will make sure everything is in order so that your tuition benefit can be properly applied in the fall.

3.    Lehigh University Awards Nomination Deadline Soon

The Lehigh University Awards are an annual opportunity to recognize the dedicated, innovative members of our community who are making a significant impact on the institution and our students. The awards committee selects honorees from nominations provided by faculty, staff, and students.  Awards are presented at the annual Faculty and Staff Appreciation Dinner, which will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 this year.

Lehigh’s highest honors awarded to faculty and staff come from nominations submitted by people just like you. So why not get in on the act?

If you know of someone you feel is deserving of recognition of the highest level, you have until Friday, February 13, 2015, to nominate him or her this year. That’s just around the corner, so don’t put it off any longer.

Go to the Lehigh University Awards webpage to learn more about the various award categories and submission guidelines.
