  • CAFE Language Survey-- If you have not already responded to the email request sent April 24, please follow this link to answer a very brief survey in support of the CAFE Strategic Plan Goal to develop relationships with nontraditional/underserved audiences. Your responses will be used to determine the capacity available within our college to communicate in languages other than English. Your responses will also help support the USDA Federal Civil Rights Compliance Review. The survey closes May 12.
  • The Staff Shared Leave Pool program is for employees who have exhausted all leave due to illness or injury. May and June are the primary months for campus employees to donate time to the pool. Donations do make a difference. Remember that subject-to-loss vacation expires (if unused) June 30. Regular staff should review vacation balances and consider donating. Donating is easy, click here to access the online donation form.
