Why We Love Our HUBs... No we aren't talking about our husbands here, we are talking about Historically Underutilized Businesses. What are HUBs you ask?  Well in short they are for-profit businesses in which at least 51 percent of its ownership is controlled and actively managed by a woman, minority, and/or service-disabled veteran. So why do we love our HUBs? Because they are typically smaller businesses that don't always have access to all the resources that larger corporations have but are still just as competitive and essential to the economic growth of our community. So the next time you need to make a purchase, we highly encourage you to visit and search for a HUB vendor on the Centralized Master Bidders List.  FMI, please contact the Purchasing Office...

Security Proofpoint... Angelo State University receives over 14 million emails every month.  Most of those emails are not legitimate and need to be filtered out to ensure our faculty, staff, and students are not overwhelmed by the flood of illegitimate communications.  To ensure we get better at filtering out all that noise, ASU has moved to a new email security tool called Proofpoint that will enhance our capabilities of filtering out those categories of unwanted email.  Please take a look for more info...
Way to go... ASU's OneCard Office recently received the 2018 BankMobile ACE Award for the second year in a row.  This award recognizes institutions across the nation who lead the most efficient disbursement programs with at least a 90% electronic disbursement rate.  We are very proud of our OneCard Office and overjoyed that they strive to provide innovative and convenient services for our students. 
After Hours Call... We understand that not everyone on campus works the typical 8:00 - 5:00 job; so what does one do if they see something like a spontaneous river flowing through campus, hear fire alarms going off, or maybe even smell a hint of something burning and it's after the typical work hours.  Give a ring to the University Police Department at 325-942-2017 and they can contact the appropriate person(s) responsible for taking care of the situation.
I Have No Idea... Are you interested in becoming a university approved driver but don't know where to start?  Well you are in luck!  All the information to get you started is right here... And remember all employees required to operate vehicles on behalf of the university are required to take these steps.  FMI, contact the Environmental Health Safety and Risk Management Office.
