United Way Campaign at ASU
ASU's campaign for United Way is underway.  Brochures and pledge cards from the United Way of Greater Jonesboro are in campus mail to all faculty and staff.  Prizes will be awarded!  Every effort was made to include everyone; if you are a new employee and do not receive a brochure by Friday, please contact Dawn Tucker, dtucker@astate.edu.  Let's all work together to support the local member agencies, whose mission is to serve you, your friends and your neighbors.  When you "Choose to Care," you make a difference.

Inside ASU: second issue
Welcome to the second edition of "Inside ASU," a web-based newsletter for faculty and staff at Arkansas State University.  Several faculty and staff responded favorably last week to the first edition.  As with other web pages, this product will evolve as we see opportunities for improvement.  We added an "archive" page this week, and the link is near the bottom of the left column.  Thanks in advance for your feedback.
