Staff members can show their Work West pride by wearing the shirts on the first Wednesday of every month. Proceeds from the shirt sales will help fund SAC initiatives like the Book Scholarship Program. Dr. Marrero and the vice presidents support Work West Wednesdays for all who wish to participate.

UWG Barrier Team
Do you know of a barrier at UWG? Something that hinders effectiveness–something that keeps you from doing your job as well as you could? If so, please consider letting the Barrier Team know about it. The Barrier Team is part of the university's Engage West! initiative to transform UWG into the best comprehensive university in America, sought after as the best place to work, learn, and succeed. For more information, see the Barrier Team webpage.

You're invited to attend the UWG Vendor Fair, Oct. 12 at the Coliseum. Purchasing Services will hold a forum beginning at 2 p.m. Learn purchasing updates, ePro tips and participate in Jeopardy UWG style. Vendors will have tables in the concourse following the forum.
