Dear Business Affairs,

Today, we recognize all of our team members in Business Affairs as we celebrate Employee Appreciation Day. I hope you will join us at 10:30 a.m. in the H-E-B Student Union Travis/Harris Room (HSU 2.202 & 2.212) for loteria, prizes and the opportunity to connect with your colleagues!

Throughout March, we also celebrate Women’s History Month. I encourage you to follow the Business Affairs social media accounts on LinkedIn, Facebook, X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram for updates as we celebrate women in leadership. Next week, join us for a Women’s History Month Panel on March 8. This event is part of the Business Affairs Leadership Spotlight Series and will feature our leadership team.

Later this month, please consider joining Staff Senate at Rowdy Games on March 23. This is a fun opportunity to engage with others in some friendly competition!

These events are optional for you to join as your schedules allow, and I hope to connect with many of you there!
