Monthly faculty/staff gathering scheduled at Holiday Inn and Suites

The Shared Governance and Communications Committee hosts its monthly after-work get-together for all faculty, staff and administrators from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, at the Holiday Inn and Suites, 5278 E. Pickard St.

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

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.
