Mark Your Calendar—Open Enrollment Begins Nov. 4

Open Enrollment, the annual period when University employees reflect on their benefit options for the coming year, begins Monday, Nov. 4, and continues through Friday, Nov. 15. This is the one time of year when individuals may elect or change their coverage for many benefits, unless they experience a qualifying life event. All of the relevant Open Enrollment information, including benefit plan and contribution details, dates for information sessions and office hours, and answers to frequently asked questions, are posted online at
