2/13 Staff Council Meeting

Dear Staff Colleagues,

Staff Council welcomes you to our next scheduled meeting on Wednesday, February 13 @ 9:00 am in the Crest Room.  I hope you will join us for our  meeting as well as our guest speaker series.  This month our speaker is the Dean of the College and Associate Professor of Psychology Shirley Collado.

As you may have noticed, there are designated boxes around Campus that are filling up with shelf-stable food items as part of the Staff Council food drive.  This is a challenging time of year for food shelves in Vermont because demand is high and fresh food from local sources is largely unavailable so they rely heavily on drives like these. Thank you for your generosity so far!  With only a few weeks left, we would ask that you consider buying a few extra items the next time you are at the grocery store and drop them off at one of the boxes on campus.

Staff Council would like to also thank the volunteers in the many locations across campus who have volunteered their time to collect and transport the items to the food shelf.  THANK-YOU.
