Did You Know?

The Staff Council Communications Committee takes an empathic approach to working with Staff Council, Institute Leadership, and the Staff Community to bridge the gaps between the three with insights and perspectives derived from research and discussion. Understanding the many needs and different points of view on campus is critical to our mission. This year we’ve completed two comprehensive surveys on staff concerns, as well as coordinated a Staff Town Hall, to help inform Staff Council and Institute Leadership on what’s important for the Staff Community, which in turn has led to work in these areas to serve staff.
