Community Engagement Forums: 2016 Faculty/Staff Engagement Assessment

Dear Colleagues:

In February, we conducted the UMW 2016 Faculty and Staff Engagement Assessment. The Results are now available for your review. Please plan to join  representatives from the Staff Advisory Council and the University Faculty Council at one of the Community Forums listed below to ensure that  your concerns are understood.  Where our most pressing needs are  well defined in the report, action planning has begun. For others, more discussion is needed.

Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, 4 p.m. -5 p.m., Dodd Auditorium, Fredericksburg Campus or

Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016, 2 p.m. -3 p.m., University Hall, Stafford Campus

We ask that you take a few minutes prior to attending the forums to review the results and other resources.
