  2. Staff Advisory Team Blog

    May 6, 2010 by Lynn McDonald

    The Staff Advisory Team, has recently put efforts into starting a community blog.  The goal of this blog is to communicate to the staff community what we’re working on and also gather feedback/ideas/suggestions for how to move forward on initiatives.  Staff members are encouraged to leave comments on blog posts but we will also be adding a feedback page, where anonymous suggestions can be given to the team. This blog will link to the MIIS@Work blog so relevant posts will be cross posted.  The MIIS@Work blog will still be the primary source of important information for Faculty and Staff.

    We hope this blog helps us communicate!
