The Outreach and Engagement subcommittee (O&E) coordinates USAC engagement with staff and senior leadership in order to fulfill USAC’s mission to maintain an active and participatory line of communication and to build a sense of community among staff. Our goal is to create meaningful and authentic engagement opportunities for staff; to facilitate a culture of availability, transparency, and wellness with the staff we advocate for; and, to collect feedback from staff to inform USAC’s work as an advisory body to university leadership. Members of O&E include Chair Randall McKenzie, Vice Chair Drew Miller, Amy Jo Baughman, Elizabeth Hosket, AnnaBell Kinsel, and Sloane Trusso. This year O&E has focused work in three areas: wellness, engagement with university leadership, and unit and regional campus SAC outreach. In November O&E played an essential role in planning the All-Staff Wellness Event for Investiture Week, welcoming approximately 200 staff for light exercise and breakfast with President Johnson. Not long after, O&E partnered with the Career Roadmap team to host a Career Roadmap Town Hall, giving staff an opportunity to ask questions directly to HR leadership. A second Town Hall event is in the planning stages. Throughout the year, O&E members have been meeting with unit and regional campus SAC groups to inform of USAC’s work for the year and hear staff concerns from across the university. Please watch the USAC newsletter and website for future staff engagement opportunities!
