From the SVC: Supporting our front-line service staff

April 18, 2017

An essential element of the university’s success is its people. As an institution, we need to continuously examine how our employees are supported and connected to our community. This fall, I charged a task force to examine work-life issues for front-line service staff at CU Boulder. These employees play a valued role in the life of the university, and we need to improve our ability to attract, develop and retain employees in these positions and provide a welcoming working environment.
