Work/Life Advisory Committee


The Work/Life Advisory Committee advises University Human Resources on issues of managing professional and personal lives. A key goal is to identify ways to maintain a university environment that will lead to effective recruitment, retention, and advancement of faculty, staff, postdocs and graduate students. The Committee conducts ongoing review of current policies and practices and identifies gaps or ineffective policies and practices. It works with faculty, staff, and administrators who have responsibilities for these issues to design new policies, practices, and training.


The Committee meets three or four times a year, forms sub-committees as appropriate to address specific topics or policies, and reports to University Human Resources annually and as needed.
