Connect with NC State Program Wins Honors from National Organizations

ConnectNCStateConnect with NC State, a web-based program designed to help NC State employees develop a strong relationship with the university, has been recognized by the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). ACUI awarded it First Place in their annual Steal This Idea competition in the category of Digital Campaign – Professional Staff, and CASE awarded the program their Southeast District 3 Grand Award in the category of Programs and Projects.

Created by the Staff Diversity Advisory Board, which is convened by Director of Staff Diversity Dr. Deb Luckadoo, the Connect with NC State website was designed by John Starbuck, member of the board and web developer for Campus Enterprises. John dubbed it the “Employee Bucket List.”

The Staff Diversity Advisory Board spent a meeting about a year ago discussing the importance of employees participating in the wide array of programs and events on campus, as well as being familiar with the various special and traditional places on campus. Board members believed that such participation and familiarity would nurture a sense of connection to campus. read more…
