Staff Service

Becoming involved in campus committees, organizations, and events is a key way for staff to become more knowledgeable about the university. By supporting and encouraging involvement, you are helping others create a sense of connection that extends across departmental boundaries.

In an effort to provide opportunities for staff to be active and participate in committees across campus, Human Resources is soliciting feedback regarding your knowledge of existing committees that staff members may join or indicate interest. Please participate in this short survey by following the link below:

Based on your feedback, a list of committees will be distributed to new staff employees at their orientation and posted on Staff Senate's webpage. Thank you for participating in this survey.
