Touching Story

Amidst the chaos of the phased residential student move-out last month (exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic), Katie Heather (she, her, hers), Associate Director of Residential Education launched a 30-Day Song Challenge for our office that culminated in an “Epic Spotify Playlist.” Everyday, for 30 days, she would send out a song prompt (e.g. A song that reminds you of summertime) and colleagues would be asked to respond by entering a song title into a shared Google Sheet that Katie created. This playlist is truly EPIC! This story fits several category options above and while it’s obviously a huge shout-out to Katie and I would certainly recommend the song challenge as a way to pass the time, I labeled it a “Touching Story.” As a new employee, having just started in mid-February, it was and remains important to me to build community with and among my team. This was an incredible way for me to get to know my staff (and for them to get to know me), to foster connection across a large office, and even to have a good laugh.

Staff/AAP Advisory Council Election

In light of the significant changes to our daily lives and our attention being focused elsewhere, we are postponing the 2020-2021 Staff/AAP Advisory Council election, usually held in May, to September.
