The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, or Campus SaVE Act (SaVE), is a 2013 amendment to the federal Jeanne Clery Act. SaVE was designed by advocates along with victims/survivors and championed by a bi-partisan coalition in Congress as a companion to Title IX that will help bolster the response to and prevention of sexual violence in higher education. President Obama signed the measure into law as part of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 on March 7, 2013.
SaVE requires colleges and universities, both public and private, participating in federal student aid programs (covering virtually every campus in the United States) to increase transparency about the scope of sexual violence on campus, guarantee victims enhanced rights, provide for standards in institutional conduct proceedings, and provide campus community wide prevention educational programming.
As part of compliance with this act, all employees will be required to complete a training module on this topic. Look for an email from Workplace Answers with directions on how to complete this module.
Additional information, including victims’ rights, may be found on the following site:

Open enrollment for the State Health Plan begins October 1 and will end October 31, 2014.
If you want to keep your current plan, you will not need to make a new selection.
HOWEVER, if you have the Enhanced 80/20 Plan or the CDHP and want to continue to receive a reduced premium for 2015, you must take action during open enrollment in order to renew your premium discounts. If you do not take action, you will remain on your current plan but lose your discounts and pay the increased premium cost for the entire 2015 plan year.
To renew premium credits, change your plan, or add or drop dependents, log on to:
Retrieve your username and password if you don’t remember it. This is NOT the same username and password as you use for other programs at CFCC. Typically, yourusername is your full first name, first initial of your last name and last 4 digits of your Social Security Number.
I have created a cheat sheet to walk you through the process of updating premium credits.
If you get locked out of your account or have questions, please call or email Allyson Greeson in the HR office.

News from the State Health Plan:
Thinking about retirement? Let us help you navigate through your State Health Plan options. You’re invited to attend a State Health Plan informational session on how to maximize your health plan options in retirement.
To get the most from your retirement health plan options, timing is everything. Did you know that Plan members should submit retirement paperwork 120 days before their retirement date to ensure the most options available through the Plan? In addition, it’s recommended that members who are considering retirement meet with their HBR up to six months before their planned retirement date.
There’s a lot to consider before you embark on your well-earned retirement journey. To help with your planning, the Plan is holding a series of free informational sessions statewide from May through July. Please note: These sessions are designed for people who are turning 65 in the next year and not for members who are already 65.
CFCC is hosting one of these sessions. It will be held on Tuesday, July 29 at 4:00 pm in the Union Station Auditorium (Room U-170).
