Staff Appreciation aNd Development Committee (SAND)

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

  • 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 & Development Committee, please email anyone on the committee. We love new ideas!

Join the non-SAND Staff Bulletin Board by emailing Linda Collins to keep in the loop about on- and off-campus announcements posted by fellow staff.
