Dear Student Affairs Staff,
As another busy Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I would like to express my gratitude to each of you for your invaluable contributions to our students, our division, and the WSU community. What a great team you are!
Staff Updates: Congratulations to the following staff for their new positions or promotions: Anthony Lambert, Ogden HUB Testing Assistant, Teresa Holt, now officially Director of SIL(vs. Interim Director), and Jessica Oyler, now Direcor of Student Affairs Assessment and Strategic Initiatives. In addition, congratulations to Rebecca Curtis, Administrative Specialist at SIL Davis, on her marriage last weekend.
A big congratulations goes to Claire Nye, Testing Center Administrative Specialist, who was just selected as one of 4 recipients of the Presidential Outstanding Staff Awards. What a well deserved recognition!
Submissions for Student Affairs’ Got Talent III are due by Monday December 2, 5:00 p.m. to email@example.com. You won't want to miss the big day, which is right around the corner on Wednesday, December 18, 11:00-1:00 pm.
Save the Date! If you’re interested in a meaningful, in-depth professional development opportunity, mark your calendar for the Student Affairs Academy (SAA) May 12-15, 2014. The program is designed for staff who are relatively new to the student affairs profession or do not have a degree in the field. Dorothy Hill, SAA Committee Chair, will be sending more info soon.
Diversity Reminder: Staff in Services for Student with Disabilities (SSD) would like to remind departments or organizations that sponsor events at WSU that they are responsible for providing any necessary accommodations, which can be arranged through SSD. A statement that should be included in event advertizing is located on the SSD website: http://www.weber.edu/ssd/ssd_policy.html#Events%20&%20Activities
Tech Trivia: Can’t find your Google Calendar anymore when logged into your Gmail? It has been moved to a drop-down option under the icon that looks like a bunch of small boxes in the top-right corner!
