Sponsored Events and Announcements
Self Defense Class
The Staff Senate Professional Development Committee is sponsoring a self-defense class that will be conducted on the Forest Grove campus on Monday, January 8 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Stoller Center.
This class is open to staff and faculty. Space is limited and registrations will be closed when the class reaches the limit for attendees. If there is sufficient interest, a second class may be added. Register here (required for attendance).
We invite all staff to join us for these sponsored treat breaks. They are a great opportunity to network with co-workers and share with Staff Senators. The Staff Senate thanks Aramark for providing generous donations to our Boxer Boosts.
