|From the Director's Desk:
October is traditionally National Work and Family Month. That's why we host our annual WorkLife Conference in October. This year, our conference is entitled "Building Community in a Culture of Change".
We all know there have been many changes at MSU lately, and we anticipate ongoing change as we reflect, regroup and reconsider what's necessary to build and sustain the kind of community we want to share. A key feature of a supportive community and productive work environment is trust, and that starts with each of us being trustworthy as individuals, and with administrative practices that are transparent and accountable. This year's conference will address the importance of trust to having a healthy community, the impact caused by lack of trust, and how to build trust among ourselves and within our various units.
