Arts & Sciences Staff Engagement Committee

In the School of Arts & Sciences, our staff are an essential aspect of the work we do and our overall effectiveness. There are over 50 staff in Arts & Sciences that work within the different disciplines as well as the Museums and Modlin Center. Our staff (non-faculty status) has developed an engagement plan that will uplift the A&S strategic plan pillars of Community and Conscience.
