ENMU Receives Science Education Grant
Eastern New Mexico University has announced a $50,000 Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities (SENCER) grant project from the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement. The SENCER program seeks out collaborations with Informal Science Educators (ISE)—thus, SENCER-ISE—in order to develop equitable, durable partnerships between formal and informal science educators to work collaboratively on compelling civic challenges.
Focusing on water and energy challenges, the New Mexico Informal Science/Current Research Network Partnership (NMISENet) brings together a group of the state’s informal science educators with a group of the state’s university-based researchers, who have a deeper, academic understanding of these issues. By combining their efforts and expertise, NMISENet will develop new and unique ways to engage both students and the general public with the cutting edge scientific research presented through informal science education programs.
NMISENet partners include Bradbury Science Museum (Los Alamos), Blackwater Draw Museum and Archaeological Site at Eastern New Mexico University (Portales), Explora! (Albuquerque), Farmington Museum (Farmington), Las Cruces Museum of Nature and Science (Las Cruces), National Nuclear Museum of Science and History (Albuquerque), New Mexico EPSCoR (Statewide), New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (Albuquerque), New Mexico Space History Museum (Alamogordo), New Mexico State Parks (Statewide), Santa Fe Children’s Museum (Santa Fe), and Western Heritage Museum (Hobbs).
New Mexico Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is a university-based federal-state partnership that aims to enhance research competitiveness through investments in research instrumentation, education (at all levels), and cyberinfrastructure. NM EPSCoR involves students and faculty at research universities, four-year undergraduate institutions, community colleges and tribal colleges.
SENCER-ISE is an outgrowth of the signature program of the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement. SENCER’s primary focus is the improvement of undergraduate teaching and learning through the framework of civic engagement
Since its 1934 opening in one building, Eastern New Mexico University’s academic programs on its beautiful, modern campus have grown to almost 100 accredited associate, bachelor, and master degree options. One thing that has remained constant is the faculty and staff’s dedication to the slogan of “Student Success: That’s What It’s All About.”
For more information about the grant, contact John Montgomery at ENMU at 575-562-2180.
Dr. Michael F. Shaughnessy has had an article accepted for publication in the Turkish Journal of Giftedness and Education. The paper will appear early this year.
Kathleen M. Schulz re-elected to board of world’s largest scientific society
WASHINGTON — Kathleen M. Schulz, Ph.D.,president of Business Results, Inc.,of Albuquerque, N.M., has been re-elected a director-at-large of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society.
She begins serving her second three-year term in January.
Schulz, who lives in Albuquerque, graduated from Eastern New Mexico University with a B.S., summa cum laude, and she received her Ph.D. from the University of Missouri--Columbia.
Schulz stresses the need for chemists to explain their science in a readily accessible way to the public.
“ACS must provide resources to help non-scientists understand the importance of chemistry to their health and well-being,” she says. “Our future as a nation depends on how well the general public, legislators and other policymakers understand and support the transforming power of chemistry in their everyday lives.”
The American Chemical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. With more than 163,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
Sandylee Pasquale, qualifying broker at Pasquale Realty in Albuquerque, has begun his term as 2014 president of the Realtors Association of New Mexico.
Pasquale is a graduate of Eastern New Mexico University where he earned his Bachelor of Business Administration degree with an emphasis in real estate. He passed the broker license exam in 1973 and has been a full time realtor since.
Pasquale has served several terms as a director of the Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors as well as being a member of several committees. He has also served the Realtors Association of New Mexico in numerous roles.
Spring Semester Begins on Monday, January 13 – The spring semester begins on Monday, Jan. 13. The semester ends on May 9, with commencement set for Saturday, May 10. Spring break is March 10-14.
Physical Plant Driving Off Birds – Physical Plant will be attempting to scare birds in the vicinity during the week of Jan. 6 starting at 6 p.m. each evening. The areas that Physical Plant will be in during this time will be SAS, UCC, Music, Administration, Curry, COB and Golden Library.
For more information, contact Physical Plant at 2511.
Minors Need to be Accompanied on Campus – One of the primary concerns of Eastern New Mexico University is the safety and welfare of young people who visit campus. Recently, there has been an influx of area youth using University facilities without being accompanied or supervised by an adult. This happens most frequently when the public schools are not in session or on early release days.
Because of this concern, ENMU has adopted a policy that states people who under 18 and not University students must be accompanied and supervised by a parent, legal guardian or event facilitator at all times while on ENMU property. This includes Greyhound Arena and its exterior property, Golden Library, the Natatorium, computer labs and other facilities.
For more information, contact the ENMU Police Department, at 562.2392.
Alumni Scholarships Available – Encourage any eligible students you know to apply for the Alumni Scholarship. Click here for more details: http://www.enmu.edu/alumni-scholarship.
Compensatory Time – As you may have heard, after the 2013 Payroll 26, we are discontinuing the option for non-exempt employees to earn compensatory time. This means that going forward, with the 2014 Payroll 1, all overtime will be included in the employee's paycheck. This applies to all hourly employees, including student employees. All overtime hours earned in a pay period must be reported for the time frame it is worked.
In order to make this change we are also implementing Banner's automated FLSA overtime functionality with the 2014 payroll.
1. This means that several new earn codes will be available on PHATIME when you enter time worked by your employees. We are in the process of adding the following earn codes:
* ADM - Administrative Paid Leave to use when ENMU is closed or has a delayed start due to inclement weather or other emergency. The earn code will also be used when employees are placed on paid administrative leave by ENMU.
* CLW - Closure/Delay Start Worked for employees that are required to work during a school closure or delayed start. Employees will be paid premium pay (1½ times their regular rate) for all hours worked during school closure or delayed start.
* HLW - Holiday Worked for employees that are required to work on a holiday. Employees will be paid premium pay (1½ times their regular rate) for all hours worked during school closure or delayed start. Similar to Holiday pay, all holiday hours worked will also count towards the overtime calculation for that work week.
* RTJ - Retro Hours Job Rate to use when employees have previous pay period work hours that were not reported on a timesheet. It is important that all hours actually worked during a pay period be reported with the REG earn code and hours worked in a previous pay period be reported with RTJ earn code, otherwise overtime will automatically be calculated based on the current pay period and previous pay period hours combined.
Additionally the earn code OT - Overtime Manual will not be available on PHATIME as of the 2014 Payroll 1. Basically Banner will automatically calculate when employees work more than 40 hours in a defined work week (Saturday 00:00 AM through Friday 12:00 Midnight). You won't need to manually enter overtime to be paid or track when employees earn and take compensatory time.
Starting with the first 2014 pay check, Banner will add any overtime to be paid to non-exempt employees when payroll is processed. This process includes calculating overtime earned, when non-exempt employees have more than one job and wind up working more than 40 hours in a single work week, in the multiple jobs combined. Banner will automatically assign the overtime and can't be controlled by HR during payroll processing.
When overtime is earned, employees' pay stubs will reflect the additional hours worked as regular hours as well as overtime hours. This means it could be a bit confusing to employees when they look at their pay stubs. For example if an employee has 4 hours of overtime in a pay period, they will see the 4 additional hours in regular earnings being paid at straight time. They will also see 4 hours of overtime being paid at half time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact HR at 562.2115.

Help Recognize ENMU Student Achievements
The Merit Badge Program Promotes Student Success
Eastern New Mexico University has launched a new program to recognize student success. The Merit program is a new way to highlight student accomplishments such as making the dean’s list, joining an organization, winning an award or graduating.
When a student is awarded a University-endorsed merit badge, a merit page is created for the student with an image of the badge and a description of the achievement. The badges can then be shared on social media channels to tell friends and family about recognized successes. A press release will also be sent to the students’ local news syndicates for further publication.
Please help us gain attention for your students and programs that make our institution unique. If you know of any students you believe deserve recognition, please contact Marissa Hyde at email@example.com.

Cammock Double Double Powers Hounds to New Year's Day Win Over Hardrockers
1/1/2014 | Men's Basketball
Wednesday, January 01, 2014
RAPID CITY, S.D. - Cornelius Cammock (Sr., F, Austin, Texas/Reagan HS) registered the first double double of the season for the Eastern New Mexico University men's basketball team (5-5), to power the Greyhounds to a 68-63 win over South Dakota School of Mines & Technology (5-10), on New Year's Day at Goodell Gymnasium. He finished with game highs in points (17) and rebounds (11), to help ENMU snap a two-game skid.
The contest marked the first time the Hounds played on New Year's Day, since a 64-62 loss to College of Great Falls, in 1971. Eastern also dropped a 46-42 decision to Southwestern Oklahoma State on January 1, 1949. The last New Year's Day win for ENMU, came in the inaugural season (1934-35) and was a 28-21 decision over the Clovis Boosters.
Cammock's performance marked the first double double by a Greyhound since Rafael Love (Sr., G, Woodland Hills, Calif. / Grant HS / College of the Canyons) registered a 26-point, 12 rebound outing against Texas A&M-Commerce, on March 2, 2013.
Eastern shot .544 for the contest, to mark the second 50 percent performance of the season (Northern New Mexico at .552 was the other), while the Hardrockers shot .477 from the floor. A 26-12 differential on points off turnovers was key for Eastern in notching the win, as was a 24-18 advantage in second-chance points. Senior guard Rodney Blackmon (Sr., G, Los Angeles, Calif. / David Starr Jordan HS / West Los Angeles College) scored 13 points and has reached double figures in scoring in 13 consecutive games, dating back to a 21-point performance against Incarnate Word on February 23, 2013. Love contributed 10 points and five boards, while Devone Davis (Sr., G, Brooklyn, N.Y. / South Shore) added seven points and five assists. Jordan Dick and Michael Deitz paced South Dakota Mines & Technology with 15 points each.

Friendly Tips About Monday Memo Style – For anyone who thinks that we arbitrarily change the way that they submit items to the Monday Memo, we are simply using (mostly) Associated Press style.
We do try to make items friendlier by using Dr. for professors (which the AP does not) and first names or Mr. or Ms. with last names for others on second reference – versus AP style of using last names without Dr., Mr., Ms. or Mrs.
We always capitalize and spell out days of the week: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
We spell out March, April, May, June and July. We abbreviate Jan., Feb., Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov. and Dec. (We do spell out all months in headlines.)
We write times as 6:30 a.m. or 7 p.m. – not as 6:30 am or 7:00pm.
We write dates as March 3, 2011, or Sept. 10, 2011, – not as Mar. 3rd, 2011 or September 10th 2011.
We do not capitalize majors: anthropology – not Anthropology (unless the word would normally be capitalized: English, Spanish).
We use professor of music – not Professor of Music.
We do not capitalize fall semester or spring semester.
We use "and" instead of "&" – spring and fall, not Spring & Fall.
We do capitalize formal names of departments or colleges – Counseling and Career Services, College of Business, Department of Communication (but not communication department).
We also go easy on exclamation points – if you win the lottery, it might be worth three !!!
We never capitalize every letter in a word – FIRST FOOTBALL GAME SATURDAY NIGHT!!! (unless it's the correct spelling for a company, restaurant, etc. – ECEL, TGIF).
We are not trying to offend anyone by editing their copy – just following guidelines.
This is just a friendly explanation.
For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
