Updates from the Staff Council:
* Thank you to everyone who attended the open forum for staff regarding enrollment management with Joe Bagnoli. It was a great turnout, and there were lots of interesting questions. The council would like to thank Joe for his time and presentation, and catering for providing beverages and snacks!
The next step in the process is for the Council to formulate a position statement that reflects as much of the spirit of the discussions and support of opportunity to participate in them as we can. Look for that statement soon!
* Thank you to all of those that answered our "let's communicate" survey posted in the last Laurel Leaf. As the Council continues to look for ways to encourage and support opening lines of communication across campus, your thoughts and suggestions are vital. The results of the survey show that you prefer a weekly email newsletter, which garnered nearly 80% of the vote. In addition to choosing a preferred method of communication, several people sent along comments, which were overwhelming positive regarding our continuing efforts, and greatly appreciated by the Council and Communication!
