Build Your NESTS
Dear faculty and staff,
We are excited to announce a new initiative designed to build a more inclusive community on our campus. In line with President Woodward’s 12-point Plan for Action, our NESTS (Networks of Engagement and Support To Succeed) project hopes to facilitate opportunities to build affinity networks across the University of Hartford community.
NESTS are voluntary, employee-led groups that express the values, mutual understanding and shared community with the priorities of inclusion, equity, and social justice. Faculty and staff can use these safe spaces to support, understand and share resources and information to connect with University of Hartford communities while transcending colleges, units and job classifications. These NESTS also offer individuals multiple opportunities to be an active contributor to campus life.
To make this a successful initiation, we want and need your feedback. Please take a few moments to reply to the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MLN9QCH by December 21, 2018.
We appreciate your responses and look forward to the opportunities that our NESTS will create!
