If you choose, “pause,” consider nurturing yourself through reflective writing, meditation, yoga, or walking.

Office of Research gets into the TGFS spirit - all week long!

May 11, 2018
The Office of Research really knows how to celebrate staff and TGFS. They don't just attend TGFS - they celebrate TGFS in their offices all week long! Christine Parks at the Office of Research talked to Staff Assembly about how they make the week all about staff.   Examples: 
  • They play "get to know you better" games, like last year's "younger you" photo contest where staff submitted childhood photos and a current photo and players had to match the "younger you" photos to the current one.
