Members of the
Improved Personnel Advisory Committee at Trinity, or IMPACT, are
moving ahead with an agenda for the spring semester that includes
developing a network through which College employees might be able
to establish car-pooling arrangements and an initiative to examine
policies and procedures at other institutions relative to flex-time
work schedules for staff members. In addition, there are plans to
investigate how other colleges handle the position review process.
The committee, which functions in the interest of Trinity
administrative staff employees on the bi-weekly payroll, is also
continuing its popular Lunch & Learn series.
A December 6 Lunch &
Learn event featured Field Hockey Coach Anne Parmenter delivering a
lecture and slide presentation to staff members about her Mount
Everest expedition. Plans are in the works for a January 25 session,
open to all College employees, during which President Jones, Vice
President for College Advancement Ron Joyce, and Vice President for
Finance and Treasurer Early Reese will offer their thoughts on the
state of the College. The event is being sponsored by IMPACT and
coordinated by Vice President for Planning, Administration, and
Affirmative Action Paula Russo, who has been appointed by President
Jones to serve as senior officer liaison to IMPACT.
