UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
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!
On December 21st, members of the council met with Administration to discuss the feedback from the survey that was sent out in early December. We wanted to provide you all with a brief update of the discussion.
These were the four themes that were discussed:
The chancellor mentioned the themes were not surprising, as layoffs and reductions have created challenges for the campus community.
Again, thank you for taking time to fill out the survey. The council continues to make progress so that all staff feel valued at UWRF. Every person here makes a difference and it is the people that make UWRF a great place to be.
