On Tuesday, October 8, SAC welcomed more than 60 of our fellow staff members to our annual 'Bring a Friend' lunch. This year the event was held at the Sharpe Refectory. In addition to hearing from SAC members about our current and future work, guests heard from Russell Carey, Executive Vice President for Planning and Policy. Russell spoke eloquently on the topics of career growth and Brown's future on College Hill and in the Jewelry District.
It's that time of year again! The President's Staff Advisory Council is seeking applications to fill ten vacancies with terms starting in January 2014. Each year half of our membership turns over, and we welcome new members to serve two-year terms.
If you're interested in helping make Brown the best place it can possibly be for staff to work—and willing and able to commit to actively participating for a two-year term—please consider serving on SAC. If you know a colleague whom you think would be perfect, please consider nominating him or her.
Four lucky winners scooped up prizes in the raffle held at last week's SAC ice cream social. Congratulations to Stephanie Santucci (Environmental Health and Safety), Marisa Chock (Education), Michelle Ross (Cognitive Linguistic & Psychological Sciences), and Paula Kojian (University Library).
