What’s Happening in HR: December 2018
A note from Safety and Security regarding new ID cards (if you haven’t upgraded yet, please do!), and TIAA retirement planning dates round out this month’s HR updates.
New Pace ID Cards
Times are a-changin’, and so are our turnstiles! The Safety and Security department is rolling out new ID cards for the spring 2019 semester, otherwise known as “proximity” cards. You might already have one. Here’s how to tell: check the back of your Pace ID card for a number under the magnetic strip. If you see one? You don’t have to do anything! If you don’t, you will need to trade it in for an upgrade at one of the following locations:
One Pace Plaza, B-Level East
Kessel Student Center
2nd Floor, Room 220
Please make sure you do this before the spring 2019 semester starts! Otherwise, you might run into issues trying to get around campus, which is definitely not the way you’ll want to start off the semester.
