2022 Staff Goal Setting

During the month of July, you may access and complete your goal setting in UVU Perform (myUVU, Employees, New Employee Management in green at the top right).

Please ensure your assigned supervisor appears correctly in the system and contact the HR Service Desk at x8207 for updates or questions.

An employee’s goal setting is not complete in the system until it reaches the ‘Finalized’ state (approved by the first-level supervisor).

Christine's last day

From Christine:

It’s with great sadness to inform you all that July 28th will be my last day working at IR. As many of you know, my husband accepted a job offer for the San Diego Sheriff’s department. We were waiting to fully move once we found a place to live, which we were finally able to find this past week.

My future plans? I’m hoping to find a job similar to what I’ve been doing here at IR. Ultimately, I’m hoping to attend graduate school, most likely in the field of social work to better serve the communities I’m interested in helping.

I wanted to thank you all for the individual and collective influence you’ve had on my career and me personally. I can honestly say that my time at IR is one of the best work experiences I’ve had. Thank you to everyone for your mentorship, guidance, and friendship. It’s been nothing short of excellent working with you all.

Please keep in touch! I would love to hear how things are going and I’ll do the same.

Construction photos

Construction has not changed (on the outside of the buildings) recently, so there are no photos this week.
