Monthly faculty/staff gathering scheduled at Courtyard by Marriott

The Shared Governance and Communications Committee hosts its last monthly after-work get-together of the academic year Thursday, April 18, at the Courtyard by Marriott at CMU for all faculty, staff and administrators.

The socialization events are scheduled monthly through April, usually on the third Thursday of the month.

The committee also hosts its first end-of-the-year luncheon for faculty, staff and administrators from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday, April 26, in the Bovee University Center's Down Under Food Court.

Food vouchers and beverages will be provided. RSVP for the luncheon by April 19.

Yannick Marchalant, faculty co-chair of the committee, encourages all new faculty and staff to attend these get-togethers so they can advance the personal connections that will cement them as part of the CMU community.

Barrie Wilkes, the staff co-chair and vice president of Finance and Administrative Services, said the monthly events respond to repeated requests to give faculty and staff a space and time to connect.

Discounted drinks and appetizers will be available Thursday for those with a CMU ID. Parking is available behind the hotel in the stadium lot.
