New to the Department?

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics!  Below is some information to get you started.

University ID and Computing:  New faculty begin here: http://its.virginia.edu/guides/getstarted.html. Follow the instructions for acquiring a university ID and activating your email account. Software Central (http://www.its.virginia.edu/central/) provides access to site-licensed software that can be distributed to members of the University at no charge and with minimal tracking.  Our local IT is Sarah (room 116, Kerchof Hall). Here are some detailed instructions from Sarah.

Setting up Direct Deposit:  In order to set up direct deposit for your paycheck, you will need to have an account on the University’s Integrated System: http://www.virginia.edu/integratedsystem/.    

Teaching: SIS (Student Information System) at UVa.  Instructors use SIS to generate class rosters and submit grades.  http://sis.virginia.edu/

Collab: (Online Collaboration and Learning Environment) Instructors may create course sites with official class rosters. We encourage all instructors to load their syllabus and other coursework on Collab rather than making copies.  https://collab.itc.virginia.edu/portal

Books: The Department will provide instructors with desk copies for their courses. See Julie (room 218).

Graders:  The Department provides graders for courses in the 2000-5000 level with good enrollment (> 20). Grader applications are held by Terri (room 216). You may search the applications, select a grader, and contact the student to confirm. The grader obtains a book from Julie (218) and sees Zvezdana (214) to complete paperwork.

Course Enrollments:  Students enroll in their courses through SIS. SIS maintains waiting lists for courses and automatically enrolls waitlisted students as space comes available. Situations may arise when students cannot enroll through SIS and need a Course Action Form signed to put them in your class.

Scheduling Classrooms: If your classroom is not the right size or you wish to reserve a classroom for a review session, makeup exam, etc., see Terri (room 216).

Copying Exams: The Department has a copier/scanner (room 203) and floor printers (rooms 313, 118) for printing. You should be able to print from your office computer to any of these printers. To use the copier, you need to obtain the passcode from Julie (room 218). There is also a copier in the Library (room 107); obtain a copy card from Terri (room 216). Large print jobs may be sent to the Copy Center through Terri (room 216).

Telephone: To make a call within the University, dial the last 5 digits of the number (ex. 4-4900). To call outside the University, dial 9 for an outside line. To make long distance calls, please request an FAC number from Zvezdana (room 214).

Mailboxes: Everyone has a mailbox in the mailroom (off the Lobby on the main floor).

Supply Room (220): The Supply Room has paper, pens, chalk, toner cartridges, and other supplies. There is also a refrigerator, microwave, and FAX machine. You may check out a projector with Terri (room 216).
