CAC is working to compile the data they received from their survey, Colin will share once published.  CAC is using broad themes for Community Norms, don’t want top down approach.  Dean does want SAC to produce a staff document, as much about the exercise as it is about the output.
  1. Micro-aggression training last week – Those who attended felt information was useful.
  1. CANR Staff Community Norms – Dean is wanting SAC to put together a staff focus set of Community Norms. Colin will send us what the CAC has, and we can use that as a starting point to apply as much as we can to stay consistent.  Some points we need to be aware of are different union groups, salary vs hourly, off-campus locations, etc.  At our May meeting we will try to get some major ideas down.
  1. Anonymous feedback from staff – Colin will send out the final document for committee to review, then work with IT before next meeting to look at rollout.
  1. Other colleges potentially forming staff advisory groups – Sarah sent contact information to Colin from those units forming committees like ours. Colin has not yet reached out to them and will connect them with the Big Ten Group.
