Staff Council initiative welcomes new coworkers to UM-Flint

Vicki Cantrell and Shearese Stapleton received a surprise visit on a recent January morning. Cantrell and Stapleton, who are both employed at Cummings Great Expectations Early Childhood Learning Center, were greeted at work by Melissa Richardson, a member of the University of Michigan-Flint Staff Council. Richardson gave them gifts and welcomed them to the university as staff members.

Staff Council started a welcoming committee in November 2017 to greet new staff to the university. Each month, two members of the council visit the newcomers where they work within UM-Flint. “We want to amplify their voices, and remind them to have a good time,” said Richardson, who met four newcomers in one day.
