500.2 Policy for use of
GC 1-800 number
Created 2002-01-01, Confirmed 2003-07-01
Goshen College provides a 1-800 number for use by prospective students, alumni, donors, or other individuals calling the college for business purposes.
Employees are not to receive personal calls on the 800 number. Operators cannot accept personal calls from or to current students or anyone else using the 800 number for personal reasons.
Faculty and staff traveling outside of the Goshen area and needing to call in for business purposes should use the Goshen College 800 number. The cost for these calls is significantly less expensive than using calling cards or calling direct. Calls may be placed to Goshen College while traveling anywhere in the United States, Puerto Rico or Canada during the day (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Goshen College time) by dialing 1-800-348-7422. This number will ring at the campus switchboard. Please identify yourself by your first and last name and your position at the college. Please be courteous if the operator should ask you any questions of clarification. As a staff or faculty member, your call can be transferred anywhere on campus (including voice mail).
Please supply your regular GC number (not the 800 number) when dealing with vendors, suppliers, or other external organizations
