The Camaraderie and Staff Experiences Committee works toward building staff cohesion and teamwork through activities that take staff out of their offices and bring them together on campus and in the community.
Staff Appreciation Month, March 2017
The 267 staff members at Texas A&M College of Dentistry are an integral part of the education provided to dental students, care shown to patients and service given to the North Texas community. An assortment of activities planned throughout the month of March aims to bring employees together and celebrate our staff.
Here’s a closer look at what’s coming up next:
8:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Details: Staff members are invited to take some time away from their desks — at one of three convenient times — to complete a 30-minute walking route around campus. A map of the route, which winds along Swiss Avenue, Live Oak and Texas streets, will be sent to staff via email. Participants may wear jeans.

Another way to recognize Staff Appreciation Month
The University Staff Council of Texas A&M University invites you to commemorate Staff Appreciation Month by supporting the Staff Emergency Fund (SEF). The fund is supported solely by donations and provides limited financial assistance to Texas A&M University staff who are experiencing a temporary hardship. A small monthly payroll deduction would help our fund become more sustainable and ensure funds are available to staff when the need arises. Visit the USC website for more information and how to donate. Anyone is welcome to donate to the fund; donations are tax deductible.
