Staff Networking Team


The Staff Networking team creates opportunities for staff to interact with each other to build connections and support professional development and personal growth. Staff are encouraged to explore various networking activities including joining our team to help create and launch new network initiatives.

The following networks were created in order to allow student affairs employee who identify with each of the networks to meet regularly, build connections, and support one another's professional development and personal growth. Although each network has a loose definition of the population it is intended to serve, the members of the SNT are aware that there may be a number of "job titles" that do not fall into one of three. Interested employees should try one or more networks on for size and see which one, if any is the best fit. The SNT is open for new network recommendations and encourages anyone interested in creating a new network to join our committee and help launch the new network.
