What is developed through Staff Forum, among many other College happenings, is intended to support all positions.

We want to hear from you

Staff can submit ideas, concerns or any form of feedback to the Staff Forum Advisory Committee (SFAC) either by emailing #StaffForumAdvisoryCommittee, contacting any of the SFAC members directly, or using one of the forms below.

The anonymous feedback remains completely anonymous and is delivered to the Staff Forum co-chairs. The co-chairs then bring the feedback before the SFAC, who then determines what to do or how to respond to the message.

Staff can also submit ideas, issues, or concerns to the Staff Liaison to the Board of Trustees by contacting them directly or using the form below.
