The President's Staff Advisory Council invites you to Have A Treat On Us! Join us as we kick off the new academic year with a staff appreciation ice cream social on Wednesday, September 11 from 12–2 p.m. on Wriston Quad. We'll be serving frozen treats from Warwick Ice Cream Co (and yes, we'll have a non-dairy option!). SAC will also have other giveaways and free raffles. This event coincides with the Farmers' Market.
The first of a series of SAC monthly open forums took place July 23 at the Watson Institute for International Studies. The conversation was robust. Topics discussed included parking (a perennial favorite!), the impact of Workday Financials on staff in financial positions, age discrimination, and the gone-but-not-forgotten Holiday Bazaar.
