Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) Update

The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) program allows employees to set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for eligible medical and dependent care expenses annually.  Employees decide how much to set aside and that amount is deducted from each paycheck before Federal, State and FICA taxes are calculated.  The FSA program is administered by TASC.

TASC has recently released a new Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Participant Guide.  This guide is available through the TASC portal, as well as on the UW System Administration website.  The Participant Guide includes details on each of the programs offered; Health Care FSA, Limited Purpose FSA, and Dependent Care FSA. The guide also includes information on reimbursement options, the TASC card, Carryover limits, and navigating the TASC Account website and Mobile App.

Event Overview
The Future of Higher Education Partnerships
When Gary Miller considers the future of his own industry, higher education, it is impossible to conceptualize the university of tomorrow without a corresponding effort to anticipate the future needs of the city and region.


Since his arrival last summer, UW-Green Bay’s chancellor has spent countless hours meeting with local employers, civic leaders, elected officials, alumni and current students to gather ideas on Green Bay’s future. He views campus and community as full partners in shaping that future. While UW-Green Bay will continue to honor the great traditions of liberal-arts learning, it will survive and thrive only if it embraces the disruptive innovations that challenge those traditions at every turn.


In a rapidly evolving, Innovation Age economy, Miller sees three keys in powering the future:  innovation, the transformative power of education, and regionally focused partnerships.

Gary L. Miller
Chancellor

University of Wisconsin-Green Bay


Dr. Gary L. Miller began his role as the sixth chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay on Aug. 1, 2014 and his installation was held Friday, Nov. 14, 2014.


Prior to joining UW-Green Bay, Miller was the fourth chancellor and seventh leader of the University of North Carolina Wilmington. After his arrival at UNCW in July 2011, Dr. Miller spearheaded the university’s focus on three core values: a commitment to the journey of learning, a deep love of place and dedication to the power of ideas and innovation to change lives.


His initiatives have included forming the Chancellor’s Office for Community Partnerships, supporting a number of programs focused on applied learning and the undergraduate academic experience, developing the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, establishing the University Innovation Council, and guiding the growth of the CREST Research Park, among many other endeavors. During his tenure, the university has launched an innovative online nursing program, opened a $30 million-marine biotechnology business development and research building, and received reaccreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.


Dr. Miller serves on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors for the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU), a national higher education organization consisting of public and private colleges across the country that value the importance of teaching, research and service to their communities. He is a member of the National Campus Compact Board and the Executive Board of the North Carolina Campus Compact. He is chair of the Colonial Athletic Association Council of Presidents.


Dr. Miller also serves on the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) Committee for Economic and Workforce Development. He is a member of a collaborative steering committee focused on a post-collegiate outcomes initiative funded by the Gates Foundation. The initiative’s partners include the AASCU, the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU), and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACU). He previously participated as a member of the task force that developed the student learning outcomes component of the Voluntary System of Accountability, a joint project of the APLU and the AASCU.
