CoffeeBreak is a newsletter distributed to Averett faculty and staff to keep them up to date on campus activities and information.

Please send information you would like included in CoffeeBreak via this form by Oct. 26 for a Nov. 2 publication.


coffeebreakKnow the Answers…Give the Answers!
As we continue our efforts to provide outstanding service to our students and constituents please remember two important things so that they don't get the "run around."
1) If you don't know the answer to a question, don't send the customer someplace else. Bookmark the Averett Central WIKI site, which provides answers to the majority of student/parent questions you may receive. Please refer to it in order to answer questions "then and there" for your customers.
2) If you still need assistance with answers to customer questions, call Averett Central at ext. 15614 and let them help.

It's that easy...and it's that important.

coffeebreakLooking for a Few Good Men (and Women)
I have the privilege and honor of crafting a diversity statement that best represents the Averett faculty, staff and students. I am therefore creating a task force of volunteers to assist in drafting the statement for the Averett community. If you would like to be a part of this very important task force, please email me noting your interest. We will meet sometime during the week of Oct. 24-Oct. 28 to open discussion, brainstorm ideas, and ultimately, create a diversity statement that will serve as the foundation for upcoming diversity/multicultural initiatives.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
Kathie Tune
VP of Human Resources

coffeebreakGraduation Reminder
