The Shared Governance and Communications Committee hosts monthly after-work get-togethers for all faculty, staff and administrators at the Courtyard by Marriott at CMU.
The socialization events are scheduled monthly through April, usually on the third Thursday of the month. Upcoming dates are Feb. 21, March 21 and April 18.
Yannick Marchalant, faculty co-chair of the Shared Governance and Communications Committee, encourages all new faculty and staff to attend 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 for those with a CMU ID. Parking is available behind the hotel in the stadium lot.
