  • All campus spaces that are reservable, with the exception of athletic spaces in the Marcovich Wellness Center and Siinto S. Wessman Arena and all spaces in the Yellowjacket Union, are to be scheduled in 25Live. The Yellowjacket Union will be implementing scheduling in 25Live by Summer 2018.

  • For Campus Safety Office building unlock requests, requestor is still responsible to notify the Campus Safety Office of events after hours or on weekends.  After a group is done with an event, they need to contact the Campus Safety Office after an event to ensure building and appropriate rooms are locked.

  • Please allow 48 hours for reservations to be approved. If you need to schedule something in less than 48 hours please contact Office of Reservations.

  • Facilities Management uses 25Live to block off any spaces on campus that are having service done to them. These times are documented within 25Live.

  • All computer lab requests need to be done in 25Live.

  • Yes, academic scheduling will be first priority. After academic departments have scheduled courses we will open scheduling to the rest of campus. May 1st is the deadline for academic departments to make reservations for the Fall Semester.

  • Academic departments will continue to schedule classrooms on E-Hive when they build class schedules. When academic departments are in lockout mode, classroom changes or additional scheduling of courses go through the Registrar's Office. If you wish to suggest a specific classroom change, please use 25Live to search for available classrooms instead of E-Hive. 25Live is the most accurate way to search room availability.

  • 25Live is also accessible via the Campus Logins Page, the Office of Reservations page, and in the UW-Superior Mobile App.

  • All conference rooms, with the exception of the Yellowjacket Union conference rooms, do not require approval from the Conference and Events Manager. Express Scheduling is available on the 25Live Mobile version.

  • All tabling requests (besides Yellowjacket Union and [NAMEONLY:MWC]) will go through the Office of Reservations. The tabling request form will then be forwarded to SSC or Facilities Management to ensure resources are provided.

    For Yellowjacket Union tabling requests, please contact the Yellowjacket Union.

    For [NAMEONLY:MWC] tabling requests, please contact Campus Recreation.

    • You are going to want to do this under the Groups tool. Here's how to get to the correct screen to make these group forums/topics:

      1. In the course you want to work in, click on the Communications drop-down menu in the navigation bar and select the Groups link.
      2. Click on the name of the group you would like to edit.
        Note: You might have to use the "View Categories" dropdown menu to find the group you want to work on.
      3. Click on the "Edit Discussions Restrictions" link in the Additional Options area.
      4. Click on the "Automatically create restricted topics" link.

      To create new topics in an existing forum, click on the "Add Another" button for the forum listed on the dropdown menu. If you have several topics that you want each group to post messages to within that forum, you will need to click the "Add Another" button for each one you want to create. I recommend changing the titles for each set as you make them to avoid mixing the group topics up. Go to the Discussions area, click on the drop-down menu to the right of the topic name and select the Edit Topic link. Add a more descriptive title, but keep the "Group 1" or "Group 2" in the title as well so you will know which group is which (ex. Project Brainstorming Group 1, Project Brainstorming Group 2 or Case Study Group 1, Case Study Group 2, etc.).

      If you need to create multiple forums as well as group topics (ex. week 1, week 2, week 3, etc.), click on the New Forum link next to the Forums dropdown menu. Once you have named the new forum, save it and then click the "Add Another" button for this forum. Keep doing this until you have the number of forums and group topics you need.

    • Turnitin abides by a strict privacy policy to protect sensitive data. Student information and papers are secured digitally through industry-standard SSL encryption and physi­cally through stringent security mea­sures at Turnitin's server facilities. Turnitin does not require student names to be associated with submitted papers. Upon request from the institution, a specific paper can be removed from the database.

      The Turnitin service complies with FERPA, COPPA and copyright laws and requirements.

    • Since July 2006, UW-Superior has used Turnitin to help instructors improve their students' critical thinking and composition skills as well as check for improper citation or potential plagiarism. It also protects our students' original work from being used without citation by another person, and serves as a learning tool to help instructors and students better identify and correct unintentional plagiarism.

    • Instructors can submit students' papers electronically to Turnitin or create a Dropbox folder in Learn@ UWSuperior that allows the students to submit the papers. The papers are checked against the database to determine the originality of the work. A report comes back with a score indicating how likely the paper is to be original work, including the sources of matches found. If the matching source is determined to be from a paper authored by another student, the instructor may then request a copy of the original paper to review. The instructor who is reviewing the paper would seek permission from the instructor whose student's work was listed as a source. Permission must be granted before the paper is released. The Turnitin service does not govern the release of the student's work; it just facilitates the connection between the instructors.

    • Turnitin is a web based service that creates unique digital "fingerprints" of each document submitted to the system. These fingerprints are compared with others in the database for originality. The system also uses information from academic resources, online encyclopedias, news agencies, and other sources likely to be used for plagiarism.

    Workers' Compensation

    • You may choose any physician, chiropractor, psychologist, podiatrist or dentist licensed in the state. You may choose any doctor for your care. If you later select a second doctor, you must notify the UW-Superior Office of Human Resources.

      Key Steps in Worker's Compensation

      If you are hurt at work or become ill because of what you think is work-related exposure:

      • Immediately report your accident or ailment to your supervisor. Continue to keep your employer informed about any changes in your injury.
      • Seek first aid and medical attention.
      • Remember that delays can affect not only your health, but also possible compensation benefits.

      UW-Superior will then report to UW System, who will report it to the Workers' Compensation Division. You do not have to file a claim yourself if you reported the injury.

      Your medical costs will be paid. If you miss more than three days of work and are found eligible, you will receive compensation for lost wages. Workers' Compensation also provides benefits to dependents of workers who die after work-related accidents.

      If your injury or illness is compensable:

      • You will get a check from the State of Wisconsin on your normal payroll date.
      • There is a three-day waiting period. However, if you are off work more than seven days, you will receive compensation for the first three days after the injury date, excluding Sunday. Any additional compensation for a permanent disability, such as an amputated limb, will be determined later, after you return to work or the healing period ends.

      It is important that you make every effort to return to work, within medical restrictions, as soon as possible after an injury. UW-Superior and your doctor must agree to your returning to some form of work; it is important that you talk to them about returning. If you cannot return at all because of your accident, other options may be available.

      In an emergency, UW-Superior may arrange for your treatment until you are able to choose your own doctor. UW System has the right to have you examined occasionally by a doctor of its choice. Your compensation may be delayed if you do not agree to have these examinations.

      You have the right to every type of treatment which is reasonable and necessary to cure you, as ordered by your doctor. This includes hospitalization, therapy, tests and prosthetic devices. Medicine is paid for, as is any reasonable travel expense necessary to receive treatment.

    • All employees of UW-Superior are covered by workers' compensation law. This includes Student employees, Limited Term Employees, Permanent and Project Classified Employees, Academic Staff and Faculty.

    • The law covers both mental and physical injury from either accidents or occupational diseases.

      If you are required to travel, you are covered at all times while traveling, including the time you are eating or sleeping, unless you deviate from regular work duties for a private or personal reason.

      Generally, workers' compensation must be paid even if the injury was your fault. (See section relating to increased or decreased compensation.)

      All compensation and medical payments are based on medical reports from your doctor. If your doctor does not make prompt and regular reports to the insurance company or your employer (if self-insured), your payments may be delayed. Explain this to your doctor.

      If UW System, who is self insured, refuses to make payments, they must notify you within 14 days after it receives notice of the injury that it is investigating your claim. They must explain the reason(s) for refusing payment and inform you within 7 days of its decision of your appeal rights.
