August 13, 2008 Bridges to Understanding-Exploring Differences in the Workplace

Presented by Daryl Dixon (1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.)

As the dramatic shift to a highly diverse workforce continues, organizations – large and small – know they must do a better job of helping all workers understand, accept and capitalize on differences. The cultural backgrounds and experiences of diverse employees and customers can deeply enrich the organization, making it more innovative and globally competitive.

 

September 10, 2008 MU 213– Alternative Winter Break – Tanzania (noon – 1 p.m.)

Presented by Shelly Clark and Doug Wilcox from UHDS

Service learning programs are changing the way housing and dining operations think about educating the future leaders of tomorrow. This presentation is the story of an amazing journey 17 students and 2 professional faculty members embarked on this past winter break in Moshi, Tanzania. At the core of this multicultural living experience participants fostered and developed essential qualities of leadership, tolerance, respect, and friendship by volunteering in an extended service learning experience of three weeks in length where service and cultural exchange constituted the essence of the program. Join us to learn about our experience organizing this trip, facilitating a pre-departure class, successes, and learning lessons.

January 7, 2009 MU 213 – OSU: The Party College?

. Joyce Fred – OSU Risk Officer

Are you aware of the process for serving alcohol at your next OSU function? The liability, workers’ compensation, and public relations exposures are several of the factors involved in approving alcohol service. The State DAS Alcohol Risk Control Policy has guidelines for serving alcohol on state property or during state business functions. In general, the public does not perceive any benefit from employees consuming alcohol on the job; therefore, alcohol service is not approved during business hours and state funds can not be used to purchase alcohol. Come learn more about the process and guidelines for serving alcohol at your next OSU function.
