Join us for the Networking Kick-off Event of the Professional Empowerment Series
The goal of the series is to provide targeted professional development opportunities for non-tenure, non-continuing track faculty, appointed professionals, and staff with an emphasis on topics which are particularly relevant to underrepresented groups.

For this Networking Kick-Off Event we will provide more information on the series, and solicit your feedback about topics that are relevant and interesting to you.  We will also PROVIDE LUNCH!
Join us: 12pm-1pm, in the Forbes Lobby and Boardroom on Thursday, June 28th!
Brought to you by the Office for Diversity & Inclusive Excellence, CALS Diversity & Inclusiveness Committee, CALS Staff Council, and CALS Appointed Professional Council

Benefits Refresher

Attend the HR/LWC Benefits Refresher July 10th!

Has it been a while since you attended your original UA onboarding (if you went to one at all)?  Are you unsure of what changes and new benefits there are since you’ve been an employee?  Are there benefits you may not be aware of?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, join us for the upcoming Benefits Refresher here in CALS where we will have representatives from HR and Life and Work Connections (LWC) to refresh our memories!
This will be held on July 10th from 11am-11:30am in Marley 230, and broadcast live for those unable to attend in person.  No registration is required if you plan to attend in person (just mark your calendar).  To register to attend via webinar click here
