Faculty and staff at University Park are an integral part to Penn State's success. Their contributions will be recognized at Faculty & Staff Appreciation Days, an annual event that gives full-time Penn State employees an opportunity to enjoy prizes, discounts, snacks, music and more. With an official VIP Passport, which will arrive in Penn State mailboxes, employees can journey through the HUB-Robeson Center and enjoy the festivities. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 14 and 15, attendees can visit each participating location to enjoy specials and games, and to have their VIP Passport stamped.
Changes have been made to the Penn State id+ Card to help provide a valid voting credential for students who have no other form of acceptable ID for voting under Pennsylvania's new law.
An expiration date has been added to all id+ cards issued since May 7, 2012 -- meeting the requirements of the new Voter ID Law. Stickers with expiration dates will be issued to existing student cardholders who wish to use their id+ card to vote. Many Penn State students already possess a Pennsylvania driver's license and will not need an id+ card expiration date sticker. Students who request a sticker will need to present their id+ card and come prepared to affirm that they have no other form of valid ID for voting.
Penn State plans to alter its student ID cards to accommodate the newly enacted Pennsylvania Voter law that will require voters to show an acceptable photo ID to vote at the polls starting with the November 2012 general election. Currently, Penn State student ID cards do not have an expiration date.
Beginning with summer orientation, all new student ID cards issued will include a printed expiration date that is five years from the date of issue. During the 2012 fall semester, current students who have not yet been issued an ID card with an expiration date, and possess no other acceptable form of ID that can be used for voting, will be issued an expiration sticker that can be affixed to Penn State's id+ Card, making it valid for voting under the new law.
Penn State faculty and staff will be getting some extra attention this November. In recognition for their hard work, commitment and enthusiasm in making Penn State a great university, employees are being honored as a part of Faculty and Staff Appreciation Days on Nov. 2 and 3.
