Professional Staff Senate

News

In late September we conducted the survey of over 400 professional staff members with approximately 150 respondents. Staff were asked to rank 13 items in order of importance to them.
An update to the USM Community about the progress of the Search Committee's work.
HR recently sent out an email letting employees know that the University of Maine System has contracted with Cigna to continue EAP benefits for a full year after layoff. Thought we should post it here as well to help get the word out.
This Thursday's workshop will include resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile development; interviewing skills; and the nature of the job market today.
These workshops put on by two local agencies, are being co-sponsored by the Professional Staff Senate, the Classified Staff Senate, and the Faculty Senate in collaboration with our Human Resources Department.
The Professional Staff Senate would like to thank the many members of the Professional Staff that took the time to complete our short survey. We will be analyzing the results as soon as possible and will be allocating our resources to work towards the goals you felt were the most pressing.
In an effort to ensure that the Professional Staff Senate (ProSen) is working on issues that are essential to you, we would like your input in determining which direction the ProSen takes for this academic year. After receiving staff feedback, we will evaluate the data to identify the top contenders, and the ProSen will address these top items during the 2014-2015 year.

The awards are made to staff members who has demonstrated: • Excellence in one's professional area • Leadership and initiative in fulfilling USM's mission • A contribution to the USM community • Creativity, as expressed through program initiatives, special projects, writing, or similar work • Public service in the external (non-USM) community
This Friday, 7/25 two simultaneous Lunch n Laugh events will take place on the Gorham and Portland campuses.
