2. We are currently accepting nominations for our annual Staff Council Award Using this brief form, nominate a Champlain College staff member that you feel is actively engaged in helping to make Champlain College a great place to work. (Deadline: April 2, 2018). The nominee should be someone who embodies one or more of the following characteristics:

3. I highly encourage everyone to participate in the bi-annual “Great Colleges Survey”, administered by Modern Think. This is our opportunity to give confidential feedback that will be used by our leadership to make decisions about resource allocation and other guiding activities for the College.  Please see the email from Katie Hawley on March 12th on the details of confidentiality and look for the actual survey sent by Modern Think on March 19th. Again, this is our opportunity to give honest feedback on our experience as a Champlain College employee.

Thanks, and as always, feel free to share your thoughts and feedback with me or anyone on the Executive Board.
