HR items of Interest

3.) Freeing Your Voice: Basic Tips for Speaking Well

1:30 p.m. June 11, Human Resources 103A

Free

Voice is most powerful when it is truly in tune with the speaker’s thoughts and feelings. Our voices are our greatest source and means for creative and passionate discourse. Each of us is born with a naturally strong, vibrant voice which, through the process of socialization, may have lost much of its natural expressiveness. This workshop is designed to help people strengthen and free their voices by exploration, relaxation, breath support and resonance.

Additional Information: Registration. Email questions to staff development.

5.) Anne Braden Institute announces Social Justice Research Paper Award recipients

The Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research is pleased to announce winners of its 6th Annual Social Justice Research Paper Awards. First-place awards went to A&S students Emily Maiden and Jacob Eleazer. Gregory Justis (School of Law) received an honorable mention. Their papers are available in the ABI Reading Room with our other reference materials for social justice research in Ekstrom Library 258. Abstracts of their papers are available on our website.

Additional Information: Social Justice Research Awards

6.) Biohazardous Waste and Medical Waste Program change

Due to increased costs for the disposal of bio-hazardous and medical waste, all university labs and clinics will be required to follow recently developed bio-hazardous waste segregation guidelines. To view these important changes, visit the DEHS website. Labs and clinics will also be required to label each full bio-hazardous waste container with a vendor barcode label. To obtain these labels visit the Radiation Safety Office, located in the Library Commons Room 102.

Additional Information: Cathy Price, 852-2956
