Parking permits expire Aug. 31
Employee registration for an annual on-campus parking permit is going on now. Registration can be completed online and in person at Parking Services, 1701 Lowergate Drive in the Lowergate Parking Deck, during this period.

Parking Services says its new streamlined form for registration should be more convenient for a majority of staff and faculty.

For more information, contact Transportation and Parking Services (404-727-1130).

Sign up for Project Compass training
As Emory approaches the Sept. 1 PeopleSoft Financials System “go-live,” the training program is in full swing. Most of the training courses offered are Distance Learning, which means that you can complete the training online and at your convenience.

Project Compass will affect nearly every department at the University and Emory Healthcare. To help you identify which courses are relevant to your role and to register for training, visit Project Compass at compass.emory.edu to outline your training plan and review the course descriptions.

In early August, there will be additional opportunities for learning during the “Talk to the Experts” training webinars. The webinars will review concepts learned during the online training and provide you with the opportunity to ask questions.

Check the Project Compass Web site for more information.
