The University Record, October 26, 1992

Handbook a gold mine of information

In addition to presentations on various aspects of the College of Engineering and a 15-minute video tour of the unit, participants in this week’s orientation will receive a 27-page staff handbook.

Among its more interesting and helpful items:

—A full-page listing of 49 acronyms and their definitions, all relating only to the College of Engineering.

—A two-page alphabetical listing of phone numbers for numerous University units that staff members might typically need to contact, either in the course of their work or for personal reasons.

Single-page entries provide information on both engineering and Universitywide programs such as the Computer Aided Engineering Network, the Center for the Education of Women, Purchasing and Stores, and Jobnet via the Michigan Terminal System.

The binder also includes brochures on such things as a North Campus walking tour, commuter bus schedules, the 1992 Profile of the University, and other College-related literature.
