  • Important details about Dr. Rochon's inauguration

    The entire USI Family is invited to officially welcome Ronald S. Rochon as the University's fourth president at his inauguration on Friday, April 5, 2019. The event will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Screaming Eagles Arena. A luncheon reception will follow until 2 p.m. in the Recreation, Fitness and Wellness Center. The inauguration theme chosen by President Rochon is Building Community by Celebrating Diversity, Engagement and Service.

    The inauguration is an official University function, and the campus community is strongly encouraged to attend the ceremony and luncheon reception between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. All faculty, staff and students who would normally have class during this time, are officially permitted to attend.

    If all employees from a University office or department are attending the president's inauguration and/or luncheon reception, those employees should ensure that their voice mail indicates that normal operations and classes will resume at 2 p.m. The same information should be posted on any vacant office entryways.

    Essential personnel should check with their supervisor before attending the day's events. Essential personnel are those vital to the operation of the facility, whose absence from duty could endanger the safety and well-being of the campus population and/or physical plant. Essential personnel are determined by their department heads based upon the incident, job function and level of operations to be sustained.

    All attendees who are not participating in the processional are asked to be seated in the Screaming Eagles Arena by 10:15 a.m.

  • How to avoid becoming a cyber tax victim

    The USI IT department reminds all employees to be cautious this tax season to avoid becoming the target of cybercriminals through W2 phishing scams. These criminals may use various techniques to attempt to trick you into emailing your W2 forms. 

    To protect against potential identity thieves, take the following steps provided by the IRS: 

    1. Be skeptical of communications you receive from sources you are not expecting. Verify the authenticity of phone calls, standard mail, faxes or emails of questionable origin before responding.

    2. Do not reveal secret passwords, PINs or other security-based data to third parties; genuine organizations or institutions do not need your secret data for ordinary business transactions.

    3. Do not click on links contained in possibly questionable emails; instead, go directly to the site already known to be genuine. For example, the only address for the IRS website is — any other variations of this will not lead to the legitimate IRS website.

    4. Do not open attachments to emails of possibly questionable origin since they may contain viruses that will infect your computer.

    5. Shred paper documents containing private financial information before discarding.

    Those who think their identity has been stolen should visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website for information about how to handle the aftermath of identity theft.  If you feel your password was compromised, you must change it immediately.  Call the USI IT help desk (812-465-1080) if you need assistance changing your password.

  • Mandatory security awareness training for all faculty and staff

    As part of USI’s ongoing effort to address information security threats, a comprehensive security awareness training program is required for all staff and faculty.  Annual information security training will better prepare USI employees to fulfill their responsibility and strengthen defenses against future cyberattacks. Employees who previously completed the Checkpoint: Data Security and Privacy training qualify for the refresher training which takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

    What do I need to do?

    To access the training at any time, log on to your myUSI account and click the training icon on the left side of the homepage. From there you will be able to access the training without any additional logins or passwords. The training is self-paced and is designed to be informative and interactive. You may start and leave the course as often as you would like. When you return, the course will open to the last page visited.   

    Why do I need to do this?

    In addition to being a regulatory compliance requirement, increasing our information security knowledge will better prepare all of us to strengthen our defenses against future attacks. Studies have shown that a substantial number of cyberattacks involve the unintended actions of our information technology users, and this risk can be significantly lowered through an effective security awareness training program. 

    IT Security requests that all USI faculty and staff complete this mandatory training by the end of March.

    This training initiative demonstrates USI's philosophy that security is everyone’s responsibility, and that includes establishing a community approach to data protection. Contact Stacy Draper in IT Security with questions at or 812-465-1063.

  • Add your events to the University Calendar

    Did you know that it’s up to you to make sure your events are uploaded to the University Calendar? Last year, Web Services launched a new, easy to use, campus calendar system powered by Localist. Since then, more than 1,600 events have been added to the calendar and more than 2,000 people have logged in to submit an event or use the “I’m going” feature which sends an email reminder about the event.

    With the University Calendar: 

    Anyone with a USI login can submit events 

    You can edit the events you submitted if changes come up

    You can (and should) add a photo or graphic to help draw attention to your event

    Users can use the "I'm going" button to get event reminder emails 

    You can create a widget/feed of your specific events for a webpage

    Built in newsletter functionality will allow you to create an email newsletter of upcoming events

    NOTE: The University Calendar is NOT connected to the USI Special Events and Scheduling Services system. Therefore, events are not automatically pulled onto the calendar. It is up to YOU, the event organizer, or other support in your area, to add events to the calendar. It’s a good idea to have a designated person in your department or college to make sure all events are entered in a timely manner.

    The calendar is only as good as the events on it and we need the campus community's help to keep it up to date! You've put a lot of planning into your event, now let's make sure it gets promoted successfully. 

    Please note, you must reserve and confirm your space with Special Events and Scheduling Services FIRST, before submitting events to the calendar. A room reservation number is required on the event submission form.

  • 2018 United Way Campaign

    Like the University of Southern Indiana, United Way of Southwestern Indiana has a proud history and strong traditions. The organization has served families in Vanderburgh, Warrick, and Spencer counties for over 90 years and continues to make our community a better place to live and work. When you give to United Way, you help families in crisis, provide health care to seniors and disabled adults, and give children a preschool education they would not experience otherwise. Your gift can help feed the hungry, fight domestic violence, and mentor young adults.

    This year, USI faculty and staff will be able to make pledges online using a form that is quick and easy to complete to allow a direct deduction from your pay or other options, as you choose. If you already have charities you support and are unable to give to the United Way, indicate on the form “not this year.”

    The United Way Pledge Form can be found online at the link sent to your USI email by Dr. Ronald Rochon, USI president. Visit for more information about United Way of Southwestern Indiana and its 75 funded programs. For more information about the USI campaign, contact Kate Rotramel at 812-465-1115 or visit
