WLO Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee of the WorkLife Office acts as a resource for gathering, assessing and prioritizing work-life considerations of faculty and staff. The Committee provides a venue for informing and guiding the priorities and directions of WorkLife initiatives, and assists with disseminating information and policy directions. Promoting the well-being of faculty and staff through recognition of wide-ranging needs and employer engagement in a well-rounded work experience is a key responsibility of the Advisory Committee.
