Dear campus community,
Good Wednesday morning.
A bit over a week ago, we announced the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) Grant application process. To date, Louisiana Tech has awarded grants to 1,529 students for a total of $827,000 awarded to students to provide financial assistance for expenses for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that are related to COVID-19.
Thank you to Aimee Baxter and the Office of Financial Aid for working to prioritize application evaluations and ensure students received the aid they needed. We anticipate announcing CRRSAA Grant opportunities for Spring Quarter soon.
Supplemental benefits for Faculty and Staff
The Office of Human Resources has worked to provide another open enrollment period for supplemental benefits only.
Enrollment will be available March 24-31, and supplemental coverage selected during this event will be effective May 1. Supplemental benefits include dental, vision, life, cancer or critical Illness and disability insurance. It does not include health insurance.
This special enrollment window is being offered this year because implementation of the new supplemental benefit package for plan year 2021, and special open enrollment periods will not be offered in future years. This is the last opportunity to enroll in supplemental benefits until October 2021.
The first communication from Human Resources Benefits Manager Taryn Soignier was delivered through employees’ Louisiana Tech email addresses yesterday. Other communication will be issued by email, on Workday, and through division leadership.
Faculty and Staff Spring Quarter 2021 Accommodations
Faculty and staff who wish to renew their Winter Quarter COVID-19 accommodations for the Spring Quarter should send an email request to renew the accommodations to their immediate supervisor.
If the supervisor approves the renewal, the request should then be forwarded to the dean/division head for final approval. All renewals should then be forwarded by the deans/division heads to Human Resources for their records.
Thank you all for finishing this quarter strong. Take some time to rest up for Spring Quarter or prepare for commencement on Saturday.
