The CSUSM Staff Center Committee has three primary charges: 

  1. Define the mission and vision of the Center.
  2. Recommend Center services and resources to meet current staff needs to begin September 2020. Services/resources may include providing opportunities for social interaction, peer support and professional development, wellbeing programs, and referrals to on-campus and off-campus resources.
  3. Develop a plan with recommendations for long-term service delivery.
