Online staff profiles are now available!

In the Advancement Staff Directory, you will now see that staff names are linked to individual staff profiles. These profiles are customizable by each staff member. The first time you click a link within the directory, you’ll be prompted to log in with your UW NetID to view the profile. Click on your own name to update your profile and add your photo! Please note that only those who have logged in with their UW NetID can see the staff profiles, and remember to adhere to the Profile Guidelines when uploading your photo.

We may have rain instead of snow, but we still know how to (holiday) party!

Please join your fellow Advancement colleagues on Thursday, December 13 from 3 to 5PM for our annual potluck holiday gathering. This year’s event includes super-secret special guests, LIVE entertainment and a bona fide cookie contest judged by UW Stars. Keeping in the spirit of the season and with our UW mission, we’re also partnering with a local charity to help make the season brighter for others.

For more details on this year’s shindig, keep an eye on your email inbox for messages from the planning committee.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you!

Your Holiday Party Co-Planners:

Katie Bunten, Engineering Advancement
Lauren McKnight, Office of the AVP for Constituency Programs

  • Fresh home page with streamlined buttons, a better Consolidated Calendar display, and revamped scrolling Advancement Announcements posts.
  • Conversations, which includes the following:
    • Staff Profiles.  You customize with profile picture and a description of what you do.
    • Groups.  Membership-based conversations allow you to manage who participates.  The first two groups are for the Intranet Leadership Team and ARRM.  If you would like to start up a new group there is a new group request page.
      • Forums.  Groups have the option of using the Forum feature for private or open conversations on a top

Thanks for 11 months of great feedback, participation, and use of the UA Intranet.
