Convalescent plasma donations

The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is actively looking for folks who have tested positive for COVID-19 to give convalescent plasma. Interested donors can go to bloodcenter.org/cp to view eligibility criteria and get started with the approval process. You’ll need to click the red Self-Referral button. Convalescent plasma donors must be pre-approved and scheduled by the blood center. No-self schedules are allowed for this type of donation. As a “thank-you” all convalescent plasma donors will receive a $35 e-gift card (Potential convalescent plasma donors must meet criteria to be eligible for this e-gift card).

If you are not eligible for convalescent plasma donation, but still wish to help out through a blood donation, LLCC Student Life invites you to join them for their in-center blood drive Jan. 25-30.

Midyear Progress Update Form

In an effort to gather progress information for the current fiscal year’s Planning & Budgeting Projects, a simple Midyear Progress Update form has been created for your completion. This will serve as an update on current FY21 Planning & Budgeting Projects. If you submitted a project request during the FY21 Planning & Budgeting Process, you will be required to submit midyear progress update information for approved projects. View updated FY21 Planning & Budgeting documents. Budget Maintenance requests are excluded from this process.

Please access the SharePoint form and provide progress information for each of your FY21 projects. The form is filtered to display the project id numbers that you will need to respond to. Select a project id number, provide the necessary information, include supporting documents as attachments and submit the form. As each project id is completed, it will be removed from the drop down list on the SharePoint form.

All submitted forms will be routed directly to your VP/cabinet-level supervisor for review.

Your responses should include specific evidence to support your project progress. If you have questions about what type of specific support, please contact Karie Longhta.

If you have any problems with accessing the SharePoint page, contact Megan McCann.

The updates should be submitted no later than Jan. 31, 2021.
