Last Call for Volunteers for
2002-2003 Committee Service

To the University Community:

The University encourages both citizenship and service to the broader organization. To support that effort, it is strongly encouraged that maximum flexibility and release time for staff attendance at the meetings of University Council Committees is provided. We encourage staff members and their supervisors to work together to allow release time while recognizing that the operational needs of the school/center take precedence. We encourage staff members serving on University Council Committees to provide as much notice as possible for the need to schedule release time for attendance at Council Committee meetings.

--Judith Rodin, President

To: University Faculty, Penn Professional Staff Assembly, and A-3 Assembly Members
