Inside ASU: first issue
Welcome to the first edition of "Inside ASU," a web-based newsletter for faculty and staff at Arkansas State University.  We want to bring you news and information each week to help keep the faculty and staff better informed about key developments at Arkansas State University.  Several faculty and staff members were invited to review prototype ideas and offer guidance on content; we hope you like the results. The target posting time will be midday Monday, but it may be Tuesday on occasion (like this week).  As with other web pages, this product will evolve as we see opportunities for improvement.  Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Engineers recommend brick fixes
After a section of brick fell from the Twin Towers stairwell recently, ASU asked an engineer to study that and other buildings.  To assure safety, plans call for removal of the brick on Twin Towers stairwells and stabilization actions on other buildings erected during the 1960s.

Health Center construction
Ground will be ceremonially "broken" on Saturday, Oct. 26, to signify the start of construction of a new campus Health Center just south of Indian Stadium.  This is a partnership project between ASU and St. Bernards Regional Medical Center.  Plans call for health services to be available for faculty, staff, and students.  More details will be announced.
