* 2021-2022 Benefit Open Enrollment

During the period of April 5 through April 16, benefit-eligible employees may enroll or make changes in the University’s health, life, long term disability, and dental insurance, and ACES flexible spending account benefit plans. It is the only chance for benefit-eligible employees to enroll or make changes until the next open enrollment period unless you have a qualifying change in status.

Please review the documents in the Open Enrollment section of the MyUE portal at: https://bit.ly/2GcdKph, beginning with the open enrollment memo, for important announcements, reminders, and changes which will occur June 1 to the University’s benefits.

We will once again utilize an on-line enrollment process, eliminating all paper enrollment forms for health, life, dental, and long term disability insurance, as well as the ACES flexible spending account. This will ensure the accuracy of your enrollment elections and maintain records electronically regarding your current and future participation. Enrollment/changes to your TIAA and Emeriti VEBA Trust retirement plan salary deferrals will continue to be processed on paper forms available in the Office of Human Resources. Therefore, you do not need to re-enroll in the TIAA or Emeriti retirement plans. ALL benefit eligible employees (including those who do not want to make any changes to their current coverage) must enter their elections by April 16. Please review the open enrollment memo and On-Line Benefit Enrollment Documents on the HR Area of the MyUE portal, which should answer many of the questions you might have about this system.

Please contact the Office of Human Resources at ext. 2943 with any questions.

* University of Evansville Theatre's ZOOMBOX Series Presents CRY IT OUT

The University of Evansville Theatre presents CRY IT OUT, by Molly Smith Metzler at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Apr. 9, and Saturday, Apr. 10, as part of ZOOMBOX, a student-directed play series on the online platform Zoom.

Two “postpartum survivors” find themselves becoming fast friends, as they slog through the day-to-day trials of raising newborn babies. Pushing the boundaries of reception for their baby monitors, they find solace over naptime-coffee-breaks in their adjoining backyards. When a new couple joins their ranks, they bring a different and disturbing socio-economic energy that shakes them out of their reverie and forces them to acknowledge and examine the effect class has on parenthood in America. This bittersweet comedy delves into the absurdity of those first months of parenting and serves as a reminder to not squander those precious moments and truly let the tenderness of life linger.

Sally Walker, a senior theatre management major, from Bettendorf Iowa, directs CRY IT OUT; Madeline Smith, a first-year theatre management major, from Clarksville, Ind., is the zoom environmental designer; Leila Bowman, a senior design and technology major, from Buford, GA., is the costume designer/stylist; Hannah Tarr, a sophomore theatre studies major, from Floyds Knobs, Ind., is the dramaturg; and Jamey Pearson, a first-year stage management major, from Temple, Texas, is the stage manager. The cast features Aivelyn Karsten, a sophomore theatre studies major, from Clackamas Ore., as Jessie; Riley Miller, a sophomore performance major, from Crown Point, Ind., as Lina; Garrett Hale, a first-year performance major, from Haslet, Texas, as Mitchell; and Beverly Buchanan, a freshman performance major, from Tomball, Texas, as Adrienne.

CRY IT OUT was commissioned by Actors Theatre of Louisville where it made its world premiere at the 2017 Humana Festival of New American Plays. Les Walters, Artistic Director; Kevin E. Moore, Managing Director. CRY IT OUT is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

Tickets are FREE, but registration is required. To secure your spot, visit www.uealumnionline.com.

All University of Evansville full-time undergraduate students who will be juniors or seniors in 2021-22 may apply. An essay of about 300 words must accompany the application, along with two to four faculty recommendation letters.

* UE Realignment and Perceived Classroom Performance

We are inviting you to participate in a research study. You are eligible to participate if you are 18 years old or older and are currently affiliated with the University of Evansville as either a student or employee. Your participation in this online survey is completely voluntary. If you decide to participate in the survey, you are free to withdraw at any time without any negative effect on your relations with the University or the Department of Psychology. This consent form will give you information about the study to help you decide whether this is of interest to you. This study aims to investigate and understand whether or not a relationship exists between perceived student and teacher performance and the rollout and ramifications of the University of Evansville’s realignment.

We are asking you to participate because you are a student or teacher at the University. Although the results of this study may be published, no information that could identify you will be included. This study is low in risk, but may carry some risk of emotional or psychological stress for those most affected by the realignment. This risk is likely no greater than what you have naturally experienced due to the plan itself. Eligible students may receive compensation for their participation in the form of extra credit for courses in the Department of Psychology at the discretion of their professors. Those professors will also offer alternative means of earning extra credit in their classes besides participation in this study. Data will be stored electronically in a way that includes no personal identifiers. No identifying information will be collected. That is, your participation will be entirely anonymous.

Questions regarding this study should be directed to:
