The 10th annual Classified Staff Development and Appreciation Day, held June 4, recognized the contributions that classified staff members make toward the vision, mission and strategic direction of UW Oshkosh. Hundreds of classified staff members from across campus participated in the event.
“Classified staff make vital and essential contributions to the success of the University,” said Chancellor Richard H. Wells. “This 10th anniversary event served to bring classified staff together to be recognized while participating in professional and personal development.”
The 10th anniversary event featured a variety of events and workshops, a buffet lunch at Blackhawk Commons, a social and the ever-popular bean-bag toss tournament. The keynote speaker, comedienne Sally Edwards, offered a humorous look at the funny side of the corporate and family dynamic.
“This year’s event, which marked its 10th anniversary, was a big success,” said Amanda Bain, vice chair of the Classified Staff Advisory Council (CSAC). “CSAC is pleased with the turnout and appreciates the recognition and opportunities for personal development this event brings each year.”
Created in May 2001, CSAC is charged with promoting a positive professional environment for all classified employees (represented, non-represented, limited term and project appointment), supporting professional development activities, encouraging informed communication among classified staff and with the broader University community, and serving as advisors to the Chancellor and other University administrators. The Council, as well as Classified Staff Development and Appreciation Day, are unique in the UW System and are considered a model for other regional campuses.
