I would like to encourage all faculty and staff to participate in the January Professional Development activities scheduled Jan. 11-22. Visit the COVID-19 Training and Professional Development site, located on the Human Resources webpage, where you will find an overview of the two-week schedule of activities. Included among the broad array of offerings are training and professional development opportunities focused on specific campus protocols to respond to COVID-19 that promote a safe and healthy workplace. A special thanks to the Orientation and Professional Development Planning Group for their work organizing the events.
I also urge you to attend the annual “You Said…We Did” presentation on Tuesday, Jan. 19, from 8:30 to 10 a.m., which will be held virtually. At the event, we will celebrate accomplishments, build community, and share the FOCUS2030 strategic plan developed based on feedback at the Visioning Session, Engagement Session, Town Hall meetings, and Strategic Planning Group review. As operational need allows, departments are permitted to close their offices to encourage participation from all faculty and staff.
