Nominations Sought for Advisory Work Group on Staff Climate Matters
Members of the University community are invited to nominate staff members for the Advisory Work Group on Staff Climate Matters, one of the accepted recommendations from the University’s Climate Assessment Planning Committee (CAPC). The deadline for submission is Monday, Nov. 6.
Working directly with Chief Human Resources Officer Andrew R. Gordon throughout the academic year, the staff advisory group will examine and form recommendations on staff-related issues identified in the Climate Assessment Survey. Some of the issues that may be addressed include staff morale, staff retention, career pathways and training opportunities, as well as avenues for addressing confidential matters.
“This is a great opportunity to contribute to the ongoing dialogue on a range of staff centric interests,” says Gordon. “The University has terrific staff, who along with faculty and students, provide the heart and soul of our great University. The work of this advisory group will provide the recommendations for continuous improvement of our campus environment.”
Nominations and interest should be addressed to email@example.com no later than Nov. 6. Members will be notified and announced shortly after the close of nominations.
