IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Building Community Takes Work—and Play
The Building Community Campaign is gearing up to host their second annual community gathering for faculty and staff. Remember last year's fete, complete with sweet treats, games, entertainment and prizes? This year's Celebrate CUnity community gathering will be held July 27, 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on the Norlin Quad and will feature favorites from last year such as ice cream, caricature artist Ken Crouse and Bongo the Balloon Man, as well as a few new treats including pizza and other surprises and giveaways.
"It's a fun, relaxing way for everyone to come together and enjoy themselves in a celebration of our community." said BCC leader Elease Robbins, associate vice chancellor of Student Affairs/dean of students.
"CUnity" is an emerging campaign to recognize and highlight the ways in which the CU community is connected.
"In our collective, we have an incredible resource of strength, creativity and inspiration to support the progress of every member of our community," said Robbins. "By being active and caring citizens, we foster the wellbeing and personal growth of our community both individually and as a whole."
Members of BCC include representatives from Housing, the UMC, Wardenburg, Women's Resource Center, Interactive Theatre Project, religious campus organizations and the CU Dialogue Network, as well as individuals from various academic and administrative departments.
BCC presents Community Builder Brick Awards each semester to individuals and groups who strive to make CU-Boulder a better place to live, work and learn. The CU@ Lunch Award is a way for students to acknowledge someone who has been a positive influence during their time at CU-Boulder. If you know someone who deserves to be acknowledged with a Brick Award, visit the Building Community web site and click on Nominations.
