Dear Members of our Campus Community,

I am writing to invite all of you to join us in recognizing and appreciating the accomplishments and contributions of our staff colleagues during StaffCelebration Week, to be held May 20 – May 24, 2019.

Our staff members are an integral part of our UC Santa Barbara family, and we will celebrate together to honor the commitment and dedicated service of our staff. We depend on our staff colleagues in countless ways, and we are honored to show our appreciation.

The kickoff event for the week will be our annual Ice Cream Social, sponsored by Staff Assembly on Monday, May 20, at noon in the SAASB Courtyard. The Staff Celebration Week Luncheon and presentation of staff awards will be held on Tuesday, May 21, from 11 am – 1 pm on the Club Lawn. Other scheduled events include the Staff Assembly Cookie Contest set for Wednesday, May 22, at 12 noon. Later in the week is our Staff Social, Crafts Bazaar, and StaffAssembly Drawing on Thursday, May 23, from 2 – 4 pm. You can find more information about the week’s events on the Chancellor’s Staff Advisory Council (CSAC) website at http://csac.ucsb.edu

We encourage all of our staff colleagues to participate in the week’s activities. Year in and year out, it is an opportunity for us to come together, enjoy one another’s company, and celebrate the relationships and friendships that make our campus such a wonderful community. Dilling and I look forward to seeing all of you at our Staff Celebration Week activities.
