CFAES Staff Advisory Council

We encourage you to bring your lunch and enjoy the company of your fellow employees while listening to our great speakers. You can view information about the full series in the attached flyer. Please register if you plan to attend.


Staff Career Development Grant
Staff have an opportunity to further their growth and development through the Staff Career Development Grant. New this year, the available funding for individuals and groups has increased to $1,250 for individuals, $1,750 for groups of 2-10 and $2,000 for groups of 11 or more, and the funds can be used for professional development, education or training costs related to job and/or career goals. Applications are being accepted until Tuesday (7/31). Visit the USAC website for more information and to view the application.

Buckeye Wellness Lunch and Learn on resiliency
With the fast pace of today's culture, it can be difficult to navigate situations throughout life and manage the stress associated. Join Jodie Leister for a free lunch on Friday (7/20) noon-1 p.m. at the Ross Auditorium to learn ways to inoculate your life from stress and better manage the hustle of everyday life. Biometric screenings and health coaching sign-ups will be available in the Ross Heart Hospital lobby 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
