Letter from the Chair

Dear Instructional and Non-Instructional Academic Staff:

It is truly an honor to serve as your Chair for the Academic Staff Council.  There is a lot we hope to accomplish this year, we are looking at starting an Academic Staff Mentoring Program to welcome new staff when they join the UWRF community, along with looking to find ways to communicate our policies that affect you, and providing opportunities to celebrate our successes.  It is my hope that you feel comfortable sharing with our dedicated ASC members any concerns and questions as they arise throughout the year.

We will continue to work hard as part of shared governance, with our Faculty, University Staff and Student colleagues.  Please, do not hesitate to contact me for anything; I'm happy to serve!

Kelly Browning
