Staff Appreciation aNd Development Committee (SAND)

SAND is now one of the President’s Initiatives and has been expanded to serve all staff campus-wide. The SAND Committee was established within Academic Affairs in 2000 to develop the following programs as a benefit to all staff:

  • Staff development: to offer and promote professional growth opportunities
  • Staff recognition/appreciation: to promote collegiality and recognize individuals for their work and efforts
  • Social activities: to host social events to network with colleagues, building camaraderie among staff and departments

If you have a comment, suggestion, or recommendation for the Staff Appreciation aNd Development Committee, please email anyone on the committee. We love new ideas!
