Get to know your colleagues!
We would like to continue to build community between our faculty and staff. Throughout the year we will be featuring a faculty or staff member in various issues of the Communicator. The feature will include just a few questions/ answers and a photo. We will randomly be asking colleagues to participate, but we would really like for volunteers as well. If you would like to be featured send us an email here. We hope you will join in!
Have a great week!

Contact Denise Wager with suggestions, comments, and content.
