December Meeting Recap

We discussed the possibility of a Staff Potluck, but decided that it was too late to get one together.

Instead of hosting a Secret Santa, we will have a Secret Pal exchange that happens throughout the Spring semester.

To split up the decor duties, we have decided to assign a holiday to each department.

A staff survey, similar to the faculty survey, will go out soon in order to get feedback. Be on the lookout for this & please participate so that your concerns will be voiced.

Mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 5th from 9:30-10:30am for the next SIC meeting!
