On June 27, 2016, Faculty, Staff, and Administration gathered together to celebrate the grand opening of the Employee Resource Room. Before officially declaring the room open, President Jordan thanked everyone involved in the project before concluding the room’s opening ceremony by cutting an official orange ribbon.
The newly created center is located next to the Art Annex in the old Public Safety Building/Physical Plant and is open to all faculty and staff. New renovations include a computer room, lounge area, kitchen, and common room.
Chip Jackson, vice president for business and finance at the college, wanted to: “Thank the president for taking the initiative to provide a space for the employees.” He also thanked the employees who helped conceptualize the area and who took the initial steps in creating the space.
