UCHV 101

Clerical Support

Our administrative staff is working predominantly remotely at this time, but is readily available to support UCHV's visitors during their appointment.

The University Center does not provide clerical support to Visiting Fellows. There are two exceptions: (i) support for needs directly related to official Center activities (e.g., making photocopies for Center-sponsored seminar presentations) and (ii) stamping and mailing business mail. Where needed, Dawn Disette or Kim Girman can help you locate appropriate resources and equipment.

Office Supplies

To order office supplies, please submit your expenses for reimbursement via Concur for delivery to your home address. For assistance ordering supplies and routing them correctly, contact Dawn Disette.

Please ask Dawn Disette or Kim Girman for basic office supplies such as pens, legal pads, staples, stationery, etc. University letterhead is available for your professional correspondence. Please check with Dawn or Kim before purchasing your own supplies and submit for reimbursement through your research account. The University has negotiated rates with vendors and it will be less expensive for UCHV to purchase the items on your behalf and charge your account directly (or, in the case of supplies that are already in the Center's possession, it will be given to you without a charge).

Kitchen Facilities

All kitchen facilities will be closed for the Fall semester.

Kitchens are provided for your use at Marx Hall and at 5 Ivy Lane. Appliances include a microwave and a coffee machine. The refrigerator is primarily for storing food and beverages for University Center functions. For the benefit of everyone, we ask that you clean up thoroughly after using the kitchen.

Photocopying

Please ask Dawn Disette or Kim Girman to show you how to operate the copier/scanner. If you use an off-campus service for copying/printing, you may use your university-issued credit card and charge to your research account.

Mail

As the expectation is that visitors will be working remotely, we ask you to direct all mail to your home address. 

Incoming mail will be placed daily in your assigned mailbox. Outgoing, work-related mail should be placed in the assigned bin in the University Center's office. No personal mail, please. The cost for most normal mailings will be covered by University Center general funds and will not be charged to your expense account.

Please note that while you may be able to seek reimbursement for packages mailed as a part of your moving expenses, the University Center for Human Values staff cannot provide assistance in packaging or sending those items.

Fax

A fax machine is provided for sending and receiving faxes during regular office hours. Faxes received for you will be put in your mailbox. The University Center's fax number at Marx Hall is 609-258-2729; at 5 Ivy lane, the fax number is 609-258-1285.
