The Employee Advisory Committee is a representative group of staff that advises the Senior Leadership team on issues relating to the Penn Libraries staff experience. Members are expected to solicit feedback from staff across the Libraries, review best practices from the profession, and prepare recommendations for continued improvements to the staff experience. The thematic focus of the group will change on an annual basis and will be informed by committee recommendations. Themes may include:  

  • Enhancing internal communication
  • Professional development
  • Policies and procedures
  • Onboarding
  • Opportunities to socialize or learn about each other

For the 2023-2024 academic year, the theme is enhancing internal communication.
