Are you interested in working with a team that explores opportunities to enhance our work experience? 

Do you like generating ideas for supporting a flexible workplace or the possibility of sharing feedback on special initiatives directly with university leadership? 

How about working on projects that deliver a real benefit to our community or simply having the opportunity to network with staff from all across campus and Michigan Medicine?

If so, you are invited to apply to Voices of the Staff.      

What is Voices of the Staff?
