A Message from the Dean: January 31, 2022Dean Laurence Kaptain | College of Arts & Media Jan 31, 2022
- It is bittersweet to announce that Teri Wilson will be leaving her position in CAM at the end of February. As trusted colleague and leader, Teri will be greatly missed. During her time here, Teri advocated for pay equality, equitable and diverse hiring practices, and improving the workplace environment through trainings and skill development. In her new role, Teri will lead and direct a People Operations team, overseeing all human resources functions, including compliance, payroll and benefits, employee relations, talent management and acquisition, and data metrics and reporting.
We’re going to seek temporary support from Central HR, but please prepare for the possibility that most or all non-critical HR functions will be placed on hold until such time that a new HR Director is in place. Here are your points of contact during this time of transition; they will do their best to assist. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.
