Photos Needed for the Student Affairs End of the Year Slideshow

Please help the Employee Development Committee make the Student Affairs End of the Year Breakfast a "picture perfect" celebration of all that we do by sending in your photos from the 2011-2012 academic year. We hope to have all areas of Student Affairs represented in the End of the Year slideshow, so gather all of your photos from this year's programs, events, and office-happenings and send them Kenny's way. All photos should be submitted to Kenny ( no later than 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 30. If you have an abundance of photos to share, please save them to a CD and deliver it to Kenny (Hahn UC 232) labeled with your department and a point of contact.

Best of luck as you wrap up our time with students this year.

Congratulations Student Life Facilities Employee Award Winners

Student Affairs Educational Tool Library

The Employee Development Committee is working to create a Student Affairs library for educational tools that areas within Student Affairs have purchased. Please let us know if you have any webinars, resources, or tools that would help others in Student Affairs! For example, the Office of the Assistant Dean of Students has a copy of a webinar related to Restorative Justice and Student Conduct. We will then post the list of items so that others in the division may contact the appropriate office if they are interested in borrowing the educational tool.

Please visit our Employee Development webpage which will serve as our division's Professional Development Library to access webinars, tools, as well as a variety of resources for enhancing and improving skills.
