ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD
SUBJECT: UCSD Staff Associations
This is a reminder that a number of staff associations have received official recognition at UCSD to assist in creating a welcoming and nurturing environment for members of the UCSD community.
The UCSD Staff Associations listed below foster communication among University entities, assist in the recruitment and retention of a diversified work force, and pursue other goals of mutual importance. These groups sponsor educational programs and normally hold regular monthly meetings that promote networking and career development. Membership is open to all UCSD career and casual employees.
I strongly encourage all supervisors to be flexible and permit employees to attend the meetings and programs of these associations as long as the programs are secular in nature as part of normal University business, and their job responsibilities do not conflict with their participation.
Employees who wish to participate in any of these associations' meetings and programs that are secular in nature during scheduled work hours must obtain supervisory approval in advance.
The currently recognized staff associations are as follows:
American Indian Faculty and Staff Association
More information may be obtained from the Human Resources Division of Equal Opportunity/Staff Affirmative Action at (858) 534-3694, or via electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please post and/or route this notice and bring it to the attention of supervisors, timekeepers, and other appropriate department personnel.
