Community Outreach Committee

The Community Outreach Committee is responsible for identifying community service projects that employees, led by Staff Senate, can participate in so that the staff on campus can work together to benefit local organizations and causes. Projects on campus will include the annual Christmas Tree lighting and Reception; conducting the annual Christmas project such as a food-drive, toy drive, etc.; and may include working with the Wacky Games and United Way activities.

The Community Outreach Committee was organized as an ad-hoc committee during the 2008-09 year and will continue to operate as an ad-hoc committee as provided by the Staff Senate Operating Rules and Procedures
