Welcoming 2019 with Open Arms
From the entire WSA Board, we wish all of our colleagues from across the Webster University network a happy beginning to 2019. Our goal as a board is to continue to provide opportunities for staff to engage in Professional Development activities that further advance their knowledge to support the mission of Webster University.

We look forward to staff participation in upcoming WSA and campus events, such as the Winter Warm-Up, The Diversity and Inclusion Conference, and Professional Development Day 2019.
Thank you for the work that you do for putting Webster students first and your contribution to the mission and values of Webster University.
