HR Promotions
The Office of Human Resources is pleased to announce the promotions of Denise Fowler and Denise Colquitt. Denise Fowler has been promoted to the position of organizational development manager. Denise Colquitt has been promoted to the position of payroll manager. Both will continue to support their prior roles as we work to fill the newly opened positions.

WOLF Tanner ReadER Drive
The WOLF Internet Radio is in the final weeks of its fall children's book drive benefiting the Tanner ReadER program. The Tanner ReadER program is designed to give a book to every child who visits Tanner Medical's Villa Rica or Carrollton emergency rooms. This helps make a child's ER experience more positive and curb the nearly 17 percent illiteracy rate in Georgia. Please consider donating a book by December 1 in the donation box outside The WOLF Office–G7 on the ground floor of Anthropology or the Z6 Dining Hall.

The Work West Bulletin will provide you with the information you need to get through your work week. This bulletin is a visually interactive way to share important dates, deadlines, policy changes, and training information all in one place. The Work West Bulletin will be published weekly on Mondays to all faculty and staff.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact UCM. We hope that you will find it helpful and informative.
