SAC News

Your Staff Advisory Council (SAC) has designed a newsletter that will be sent to all UMW staff monthly. We hope to keep you informed and up to date regarding University issues, events and plans. Our first issue should hit your inbox soon!

Spring is upon us, and SAC looks forward to seeing you at a faculty staff mixer. Join your colleagues Thursday, April 7, at Home Team Grill from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. for fun and relaxation!

At our March meeting, Michelle Crow Dolby shared exciting information about Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont and the events there.  Belmont’s 5th Annual Beeping Egg Hunt took place Sunday, March 20.  The event was for visually impaired children and their families. Families enjoyed an audible egg hunt, miniature petting zoo, Touch a Tractor and activities in the art gallery. Did you know that Belmont offers guided woodland hikes conducted by Virginia Master Naturalists?  Check out the Belmont website for more information.  Admission is free for UMW employees.

Don’t forget about our Excellent Eagle Employee award. If you would like to nominate someone for the Excellent Eagle Employee award, send an email to with Excellent Eagle Employee in the Subject Line. Be sure to provide the person’s name, department and work location with the most convenient parking lot, and the reason they should be recognized.
