Invitation to VIU Town Halls

I am excited to share with you the next steps of the People Plan process. The first part of the consultation phase of the project is a series of Town Halls. They will provide you with the opportunity to hear from the Executive Sponsors, (Ralph Nilson, David Witty, and Shelley Legin) and myself, as the project lead, on the work that has taken place, why this is an institutional priority, and hear any thoughts you may have or questions you would like to ask during a Q&A.

Choose one of the Town Halls below that you would like to attend and discover what the People Plan will mean to you.

Another great opportunity to provide your thoughts and feelings will be a survey that will be sent mid-February regarding your employment experience at VIU. We hope you will participate in the short survey as we want to hear from you! We are striving to find as many ways as we can to collect feedback.
