ESUP Update 08/26/13 - 09/09/13

ESUP welcomes new consultants
If you walk through 150 Williamson Hall this week, you’ll see a new work area in the back corner where a conference table used to sit. This is the new home of the Identity Management (IdM) project and its PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) consultants. Click here for more information.

New Program Director search announced
On August 9, 2013, the ESUP Executive Oversight Committee announced the posting for a new Program Director position. Since this is a substantial organizational change, ESUP Change Management and Communications team pulled together a few questions for the executives. The following Q&A is based on discussions with Robert Elde, Dean of the College of Biological Sciences, and Kathryn Brown, Vice President of Human Resources. Click here to read the Q&A.
