Lack of Preferred Parking at Salus Center, (9/10/15)
SUBMISSION: I'm paying for preferred parking, and often have to leave for meetings at many other locations across campus so I do prefer to keep the "preferred parking". However There are an extremely limited availability of preferred parking spots at Salus and these fill up quickly when students are here. Please consider adding additional preferred parking spaces at Salus. thank you. (9/10/15)
RESPONSE: Thank you for your suggestion. Because of the change to the parking structure over the summer, Parking and Card Services has been periodically reviewing all lots/garages on campus to see if any adjustments are necessary and if they are possible. We will certainly take your suggestion into consideration while we go through this process this fall. In the mean time, if you do not feel that your Preferred parking is being utilized you can certainly bring your hang tag to the parking office and switch your permit to a General. Thank you!
Statues and Art on Campus, (5/29/2015)
SUBMISSION: I am totally disappointed in the SLU administration for removing the statue of Fr. Desmet praying with the Indians. Everyday it appears SLU is losing it's Catholic identity from pressure by the Faculty and Students. As an employee of this university, I have always tried to defend the poor decisions made in the past, but I just can't seem to stand behind this one. It scares me to think "What's Next?" In the meantime, I'll continue my prayers for SLU to take the steps needed to renew our Catholic Jesuit identity. (5/29/15)
RESPONSE: SLU has not removed the statue of Father DeSmet from the campus. The University is in the process of relocating the statue to the SLU Museum of Art where it will be a prominent part of the extensive collection of Jesuit artifacts, which are already on display, including many from Father DeSmet himself. The University’s commitment to its Catholic, Jesuit identity remains strong, and SLU is proud of Father DeSmet, as the University museum collection demonstrates.
Quality of Service from DineSLU, (4/28/2015)
SUBMISSION: I am on the executive board of the Women's Commission and we had the Women of the Year Recognition Program today at Wool Ballroom in Busch Student Center. I am disappointed to report that our lunch was terrible. Not only did it taste terrible, but I personally had one tiny piece of chicken in my salad. The board member, who chose the menu, was sitting next to me had no chicken in her salad. She had to return her meal so they could add chicken. There was no bread on the tables to accompany the salad. One server brought out two bread baskets after everyone was finished eating, for two of the head tables. The service was painfully slow and we had to ask for coffee and cream and a second cup was not an option. Upon returning to my office I received several phone calls from people who attended the luncheon to complain about the food and service. Complaints ranged from no chicken on salads, no coffee unless they asked for it, no bread, and the dessert was dry. First Lady Fran Pestello was sitting next to me and she also voiced her concerns regarding how much Aramark will charge for this meal that was clearly not a fair exchange of goods and services. Please forward this to the Vice President of dining services. Thank you. (4/28/15)
RESPONSE: Thank you for using SLU's Suggestion Feedback Tool. When discussing ways to improve dining and catering the Vice President of Student Development does consider the input that we receive through this forum. We understand your concerns and appreciate your feedback. We will pass along this information to the Resident District Manager of Aramark at DineSLU -- Jeff Marshall at 314-977-4030 and we will reply to you directly, as well.
Security Options on Public Printers, (4/22/2015)
SUBMISSION: I understand that the university has made the decision to reclaim individual printers from staff and faculty in favor of installing networked printers. Although I understand the university's desire to conserve energy and resources, I find this idea very disruptive to my work process. I handle a large volume of confidential information that needs to be printed and do not have the time to run down the hallway to chase after printed pages every time I need to print something. What kind of exceptions are being made to accommodate those who handle large volumes of confidential materials? (4/22/15)
RESPONSE: Thank you for using SLU's Suggestion Feedback Tool. Each copier has a feature called Secure Print to address confidentiality needs of users. This feature allows the print jobs to be held in the print que until released by the end-user with their own personal code. In addition, because the jobs can be held at the device until released by the end-user, multiple jobs can be released at the same time which prevents the user from having to retrieve each individual print job.
Expanded Shuttle Service, (2/11/2015)
SUBMISSION: Shuttle for the East and West garages if you work in the hospital (2/11/2015)
RESPONSE: Thank you for your suggestion which I forwarded to Transportation Services for future discussion. At this time however, there are no plans to modify the Grand Ave shuttle service or add a shuttle to incorporate a pick up and drop off at garages and dropping off/picking up at the hospital.
