Academic Staff Assembly FUN Events

Academic staff represent units and departments all across the university, in both instructional and non-instructional roles. At times, it can be difficult to break out of the divisional "silos" that Provost Kopper has warned us all about. Getting to know individuals outside of your normal day-to-day routine has the potential to increase collaboration and maximize the value that the students and fellow colleagues receive from our efforts.

To that end, the Assembly created the FUN [Fostering Unity & Networking] Task Force, which hosts both Lunches, which are semi-formal, bring-your-own sessions with featured networkers. These events highlight projects being done, as well as provide a mechanism for feedback into the development process. The Happy Hours, in contrast, are informal and designed to allow for interaction outside of the work setting with people from across campus.

While events are geared towards academic staff, all university employees are welcome to attend.
