Meet Your Colleague

Employee Development serves the role of supporting departmental staff through a wide variety of professional development programs and activities. Employees who work at the University bring rich experiences and diverse backgrounds to the community. In order to ‘share this wealth’, our office sponsors Meet Your Colleague, a program which offers opportunities for members of the University community to meet some of our more high profile members of the faculty, administration and staff to gain a broader perspective of the University.

These informal lunch-time sessions provide insight into an individual’s responsibilities within the University community and also allow for the sharing of a personal ‘story’ to the degree one wishes. 

Meet Your Colleague is presented six times throughout the academic year. All sessions are held in Walsh Hall Function Room from 12:00pm to 1:30pm.
