Michigan State University’s Energy Transition Plan was created by the Energy Transition Steering Committee, to develop a long-term plan that will help MSU reliably meet its future energy needs while considering future energy costs and environmental impacts. The committee recommends that the long-term vision for the university should be to transition to a campus completely powered by 100% renewable energy sources. President Simon has received the plan from the committee, and the MSU Board of Trustees is scheduled to vote on the plan in April.
Sitting at a computer for hours every day is known to cause stiffness in your neck, shoulders and lower back. Since we all can’t make it to one of Health4U’s chair massages, try stretching at your desk! This Computer and Desk Stretches sheet can be used as a simple, easy and effective way to stretch out your soreness right at work. You can do one of them, a few of them or all of them in the order they appear on the PDF document for the best possible stretch! They only take about four minutes to complete and should make you feel better and therefore more productive! Try them out and see how you feel! If you’re still feeling stiff, it is also a good idea to try walking around the office to get your blood flowing again.
We don’t always like to think about the possibility of health or safety threats on campus, but they do happen. MSU ALERT is one way that Michigan State University delivers significant emergency information to the campus community. In the event of an emergency, MSU ALERT is able to send you an email message, an SMS text message to your cell phone and call you with a recorded message using the Blackboard Connect-Ed system.
All employees are automatically subscribed to receive emergency notifications through MSU ALERT unless they opt-out. (It is strongly recommended that no employee opt-out of MSU ALERT.) MSU ALERT uses the MSU registered email address and phone number on file for you from the MSU directory. You can add additional contact information if desired. You also can add additional phone numbers that aren’t your own, such as a spouse, friend or neighbor if you would like them to be informed of emergency situations on campus.Continue Reading… Stay Aware with MSU ALERT
