06/02/21 Academic Affairs Brief

Faculty & Academic Staff Email Updates Weekly

This Brief Includes:

  • Employee Vaccination Attestation

  • TIAA June Webinars


As we continue planning for a summer return to on-campus work in July, it is important to understand how many of our employees are vaccinated. This information will be used to plan for summer testing numbers as well as assisting to determine what testing strategy we will need for the fall. Please fill out the Employee Vaccination Attestation form as soon as you are eligible to do so. The link to the form will continue to be a standing part of the Academic Brief updates (see button below) each week.

While we realize many faculty may not be returning to campus until August, we encourage all who are eligible to
fill out this form as soon as possible.


TIAA is hosting a series of webinars in June. Employees should use this link to register: www.tiaa.org/webinars. Webinars are available for 30 days after the date of presentation for employees to go in and watch.

Additional resources available after the overview session will provide a closer examination of meaningful purpose, wellness and lifestyle, emotional strength, mental acuity, and nurturing relationships in retirement.
