On behalf of the Employee Council, we welcome you to a new academic year. We hope that everyone had a fantastic summer with time for rest and recuperation.
We look forward to continually strengthening our collaborations with staff and faculty colleagues across campus. In this spirit we are resuming our open Coffee Hours! Coffee Hours are an informal opportunity to meet Employee Council reps and colleagues from across camps to socialize and discuss campus issues that matter to you. We had a great group at our first coffee hour earlier this week. The second coffee hour will take place on Thursday, September 27, 10-11am at Frost Café. Enjoy a free coffee and muffin courtesy of the council.
