ENRICH YOU at WIU!

Think Purple, Think Success, Think Western

"Enrich YOU at WIU!" are employee programs designed with YOU, our employees, in mind. ALL WIU employees--faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to participate in any of the sessions listed. All sessions are free of charge, unless otherwise indicated! So that we may adequately prepare seating, handouts, or supplies, you are encouraged to register through Human Resources prior to the session. It is advised to register as early as possible as many sessions will fill up quickly. Step out of your routine to REFRESH and RECHARGE…learn something new, meet other employees, and step outside of your comfort zone! It's all waiting here for YOU!

For more information, to ask questions, or make suggestions for future sessions, please contact Sheila Downin in Human Resources at S-Downin@wiu.edu or call Human Resources at 298-1971.
