Do we send thank you notes to SHS donators? I think that is a great way to thank people. I always give to United Way and specify to SHS and never really hear if they receive it or not.
Speak up Be heard: Other
We do not receive information as to who donated what in United Way for Staff Helping Staff. It only shows up as a lump sum amount on the donor report. For regular Staff Helping Staff donations during giving day we do send thank you notes. We also send thank you cards on Gratitude Day.
My merit increase was 1.75%!!! Seriously? ASU is paying way below average for their staff. Are they working on restructuring the pay for ASU employees?
Thank you for your question. The university continues to evaluate local labor markets and recently established new minimum pay levels for full and part-time employees. College and department leadership are entrusted with applying the merit exercise in a fair and equitable manner. Your supervisor or internal human resources department can assist you in understanding how the merit system is applied for your particular area.

ASU Downtown Phoenix buildings
Why are the buildings still closed but every other campus is open? It was closed in response to COVID but now everything is still locked down. It causes a lot of bottle necks with only one door being open for thousands of students trying to enter. Not to mention that people visiting cannot get in.
University closure 12/23 - 01/02
Hello, I believe it would be beneficial for university staff to have paid time off and it would be helpful to the environment for the university to be closed from December 23rd through January 2nd each year. Having worked in both EOSS in the SAILS department and now working in CHS, the activity on campus and work load from 12/23 through 01/02 is non-existent. Requiring staff to be on campus and the university to be open is a waste of resources. Specifically, living in a desert oasis with dwindling water and by keeping the heat and electricity running for no students to be on campus and infrequent visitors, the university is doing more harm than good to the surrounding environment. Additionally, morale in staff would be boosted and the overall employee culture would improve if the university was closed and the staff received paid time off from 12/23 through 01/02.
Thank you for your feedback. Although closing the University is not in alignment with the various needs and components of the University, employees have the option of requesting time off during the holidays.
Tuition aid for student workers
I am a student worker (ASU employee), am I eligible for any tuition aid or any other financial support from ASU?
At this time, only benefits eligible positions can be eligible for the qualified tuition reduction benefit.
Lunch can we have an option
Hello I was wondering if I am a salaried employee do I need to take a lunch I was told too and hour at that which is long time and so instead of putting an 8 hour day I am working 9 hours and I feel it's a waste of time for an hour do we have an option to take 30min or none so we can leave after 8 to get home to our families? We are sometimes so busy we snack at our desks to get stuff done and get out on time. If this a something that can be revised to all schools and departments to let us have options not feel forced or like a prisoner cause we can't leave after 8 hours of work. I am not the only one that feels like this. If this can be revised or we are given options and all departments and schools and salary people updated that would be great to know and our managers know so we can be all on the same page. Thanks
There are no existing Federal, State, or local laws/regulations mandating employers provide (or require) exempt (salaried) employees take meal breaks. At ASU, Staff SPP 306 states “employees are entitled to an unpaid meal break of at least 30 minutes each work day.” ASU leaders are provided the flexibility to manage resources including staff to achieve ongoing business goals and objectives. At the same time, leaders are expected to foster a balanced work environment – ensuring the work gets done with a sensitivity to the health and wellbeing of each employee. Employees are encouraged to have direct dialogue with their supervisor to discuss avenues to achieve this important balance.
Cost of living wage increases
Since the economy is declined, a lot of the necessary things in life are increases. Gas is on the rise, groceries are more money then they have ever been. Will ASU finally give their employees a cost of living raise?
The executive committee is aware of the general living costs in our market and the pressure on wages. We continue to evaluate local labor markets. We also have a policy that we pay all full time employees at least the livable wage and we accelerated our 2022 merit program. However, we acknowledge there is still work to be done.
My question is as follows since people were either quarantined at home or essential personal here at ASU in 2020 very little really happened for the staff council ! In essence can we as the current staff council members have an extended year added to our elected term limits if a council member chooses to or not and being the Art walk winner i have several projects and proposals in mind but we all lost a productive year ! How do we go about extending or adding the lost year !
Existing Staff Council members whose terms have expired are welcome to continue active membership. We welcome all previous members to continue Staff Council membership with an additional term.
More attention to detail of posts
I was looking through and see a lot of things posted as "resolved" but really it was just a brush off of a link to the current policy and not consideration of what was suggested or asked. I would appreciate updates based on discussions (i.e. notes from meetings perhaps) instead of basically being told to look at what I was already questioning.
Can you tell us why there is no ASU Directory, the one online is down, and when it is up there is no information there, it is impossible to locate emails and phone numbers of fellow staff members when you do get into the directory. You can find the person, but no way of contacting them. Why is this not available to us. Also departments should be listed there as well, but we can not find them. UTO does not seem to have an answer? Why?
You can now access the Directory at the bottom of the homepage on asu.edu
