Continuing a new tradition established in 2012, the seventeenth annual Staff Recognition Awards will be presented along with the Isaac L. Jordan, Sr. Staff Pluralism Award during the Presidential Awards for Outstanding Staff ceremony.
As you are aware, in a memo dated October 30, 2012, President Destler charged the individual governance groups with reviewing and providing feedback related to the reports of the Cost Containment and Productivity teams. In an effort to provide thorough feedback to the President, Staff Council reached out to staff on campus in several ways, which included:
President Destler has tasked the governance groups with gathering community response regarding the four Cost Containment Committee reports (RIT computer account required). As a follow up to my previous blog post (How to voice your reaction to the Cost Containment Reports), I would like to announce the dates and times of Staff Council's open community forums:
By now you have no doubt heard about the Cost Containment reports focused on procurement activities, information technology infrastructure, revenue generation and cost cutting, and employee benefits. The complete reports from these committees, as well as President Destler’s cover letter, are available at http://www.rit.edu/president/productivity.html (DCE login required).
New this year, the sixteenth annual Staff Recognition Awards has been combined with the Isaac L. Jordan, Sr. Staff Pluralism Award ceremony to together make the Presidential Awards for Outstanding Staff.
Okay, I have to be honest - I don’t know! Sorry to get your hopes up, but we are all going to have to wait until the Fifteenth Annual Staff Recognition Awards Ceremony on October 5th to find out. In the meantime, our Staff Recognition Awards Display has been repopulated with a bunch of nameless silhouettes as a teaser to help build anticipation leading up to the big day.
