CHS staff culture and climate survey results now available
CAPS Council administered its first-ever staff culture and climate survey in April '19, assessing the thoughts and perceptions of classified staff and university and academic professionals.

The CAPS Council serves to support the diverse staff of the College of Humanities and Sciences by facilitating honest and open communication, thereby providing an avenue for employees to address concerns and generate solutions, make recommendations to the administration regarding classified needs, and provide input to College governance on issues involving the classified staff workforce.

It’s easy to get down in the dumps sometimes, especially when you think no one notices all the hard work you do. Motivation is a tough thing to hold on to. So whenever you’re feeling blue, just come visit your friends at CAPS Council and we’ll remind you how awesome you are!
