New to UL Committee

Purpose Statement

This committee’s efforts will help welcome all new University Life staff members to the division. Programs managed by this committee will facilitate orientation and transition into the division of University Life.  This committee plans the New to University Life orientation sessions and the newly created Patriot Partners program for those interested in connecting with a colleague in UL.  A roster of new employees will be generated and shared with all interested parties. The committee will consistently assess existing programs and look for new initiatives to compliment this foundation.
