HDAE Highlights

June 26, 2020
Summer Reading List: UCNet’s informative article about the Implicit Bias Series. (The Implicit Bias Series is available to all employees through the UC Learning Center. There are 6 classes in the series and each one takes 20-30 minutes)… The UCSB Library has curated resources on Race, Racial Relations, and the Black Experience... In commemoration of Juneteenth, the Santa Barbara Independent created a great list of resources from which to learn.
Not only do we strive to create community in our housing facilities, HDAE staff members donate time, food, and funding to a variety of worthy causes in the local community. Here are a few examples of how we are making a difference. Kristen Burnett (Residential & Community Living) and her son Ian are volunteering for the Santa Barbara Foodbank. Kelly Stanley (Conference & Hospitality Services) donates platelets at Vitalant up to six times a year. Do you have a volunteer story? Or do you know of a co-worker who is volunteering? Let us know! Email jlevangie@ucsb.edu
As they were reminiscing fondly of past gatherings and looking forward to the time they are able to meet in person again with their customers, our Conference & Hospitality Services staff came up with the brilliant idea of connecting with their clients via personal messages on these custom greeting cards. They will be mailed around the time their clients typically have their summer program at UCSB.
Take a look at HDAE’s wellness page under the resources tab on HomeBase. The Safety & Wellness Team updates it regularly with great resources so check back often.
