Voices of the Staff seeks new volunteers

Staff are asked to help build and sustain connections across the university by volunteering for service on a Voices of the Staff network team. Voices offers an opportunity to share ideas and define campus community issues that matter most. Volunteers representing a microcosm of the staff community meet monthly to discuss topics and opportunities of top concern. Applications now are being accepted for service on one of six network teams: Benefits, Health and Well-Being; Career Development; Environmental Stewardship; Leadership Development; Technology/Best Practices; and Work Climate. The application deadline is March 31. For more information or to volunteer for a Voices network team go to
