Getting Paid

Workday is where you will find your paystubs and your W2 advices. You can also use Workday to enroll in or change allocations to direct deposit for payroll, and you can change your department phone number and personal contact information. Two-step login is required for all parts of Workday.

For more information, contact Vicky Brevetti.

Spending your Research Funding

You can directly view information about your Research Account(s), including account balances, transactions, and usage summaries, via the online Oracle Business Intelligence (OBIE) dashboards. You can also view basic account information at the PI Dashboard. If you'd like training on how to use either resource, contact Kathy Griffiths or Sara Eddleman.

If you are planning a research trip, be sure to contact Kathy Griffiths before you travel.

Booking Rooms

To request to use the English Lounge, email Lynn Lauper with desired date and time. Use of the English Department Lounge expects the requestor to "leave no trace"; please review the Lounge Use Guidelines before you contact Lynn for a reservation.

To reserve a classroom in Goldwin Smith, email Karen Kudej for more information.

To reserve a room in another building, please contact A&S Scheduling at as_rmrsv@cornell.edu.

For more information about events, contact Lynn Lauper or Sara Eddleman.

Requesting IT and A/V Support

The Department of English does not have any dongles/adapters available for Apple computer users. Please be sure to bring your own whenever you need to use an available screen (the Lounge and GSH 232 are both equipped with large screens). You can also check out a necessary dongle from Olin Library.

To get in touch with IT support: Send an email to gsit@cornell.edu outlining your concern.
This will create a ticket, and the next available IT person will follow up on your concern. If you want the department in the loop about your request, be sure to cc Sara Eddleman (sle58) on your initial
email.

To request audio/visual support: Contact Kevin Mathy via email to arts_av_tech@cornell.edu or call 227-5816.

Hiring Students

If you would like to hire a student (undergrad OR grad) or a temporary worker, PLEASE talk with Vicky or Sara first! Graduate students and undergrad students have different caps depending
on status for the hours that they can work – we need to determine eligibility before any hiring conversation takes place. Additionally, we can check to see whether the person is already able to be
hired and determine what necessary paperwork will need to be done. If you plan on paying for this work from your research funds, you MUST talk with us first, as reimbursement for paying out-of-pocket
is not in line with Cornell policy.

Publishing

If you need to find an indexer for your current manuscript, talk with Sara Eddleman about options and recommended indexers, standard indexing rates, and how to set someone up to get paid by Cornell.
