Happy October, Purdue!

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who took time away from their busy schedules to attend some of the APSAC-hosted events this past month:

-       Job Family Town Halls

-       Provost Akridge’s Lovell Leadership Series Presentation

-       Purdue Employee Resource Fair

I’d also like to take a moment to say thank you to all that provided feedback or reached out to an APSAC member in past month. We are here for you and it’s wonderful to see more engagement from Purdue employees. This month, I’d like to share a snapshot into what APSAC does throughout the year. Here are some of the tasks we complete each month:

With the ever-shifting environment that is Purdue, APSAC is always keeping tabs on upcoming projects or changes that will affect Purdue’s employees.
