|Film crew on campus
|A Los Angeles-based independent film crew will be on campus through mid-May to produce a faith-based film inspired by the story of Mike Jensen ’96, former lecturer in music and voice instructor at Wartburg, who is battling brain cancer. The project is led by alumnus Brian Ide ’96 and will involve many students. Please be aware the college is supporting this endeavor, and we encourage the campus to be as hospitable as possible. Thank you for your patience with this project.
|Posekany Literacy Award winner announced

The award provides funding for Calease Fox to attend the Iowa Reading Association ESEA Title 1 Conference in Ames, June 27-28.

|Pay rate increases for Dining Service and Operations & Maintenance student employees
|Effective with June 2017 work hours, Dining Service and Operations & Maintenance college student employees will receive pay rate increases. The pay rate for student assistants will be $8.25/hour (current base pay of $7.50), and the pay rate for student managers will be $9.00/hour (current base pay of $8.30). This will replace the current pay grid in which students receive pay increases for every 200 hours worked in these departments. Anyone presently receiving more than the new pay rate due to the increase for each 200 hours worked will be grandfathered in at their present pay. Office positions in these departments will remain exempt from receiving the pay increases.
The pay increases are intended to help recruit and retain student employees in both departments and, therefore, aid in maintaining quality customer service and daily operations. For more information, please contact Margaret Empie, assistant vice president of dining and retail services, or Keith Strand, director of general maintenance and cleaning.

|Student employee wages
|Effective June 1, the Wartburg College Student Employment program will require all student employees to deposit their wages directly into their bank account, set up a Student Payroll Deduction Agreement to have wages applied to their tuition account, or arrange a combination of these two options. This change is part of the college’s expense-reduction efforts as well as a way in which we can adapt more sustainable practices.
|Student employment forms
|Direct deposit forms and Student Payroll Deduction Agreements can be picked up in the Student Employment Office, Luther Hall 212, or found on our website. Completed forms should be submitted to the Student Employment Office by their respective deadlines. Questions regarding this change can be directed to Abbie Raum, student employment coordinator, email@example.com or 319-352-8350.
