This past fall, 2018, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Mary Opperman,Senior Director HR Strategy Reginald White, and the Employee Assembly teamed up to host 11 “Staff Conversations” across the main campus, East Hill Plaza, Seneca Place and Geneva to hear from staff. Each one-hour session focused on four core questions: What helps or hinders your sense of connectedness on campus? What systems or processes are currently in place to help you feel connected to Cornell? What have you done or might you do to create a sense of connected community at Cornell? What advice or recommendations do you have for HR / EA?
