Fort Lewis College recently established a Classified Employee Panel whose charge is to explore employment and compensation possibilities within, and limitations to, the State Classified Personnel System. This panel will also collect, evaluate, and communicate ideas or suggestions regarding how the College can implement the State’s employment and compensation directives.
Classified Employees representing the major areas and disciplines across campus were chosen through a combination of direct appointments or suggested appointments from supervisors. The members of the Panel are: Dawn Widen, Barb Powers, Yujean Shockley, Connie Rauen, Fabio Wen, Ed Webb, Dana Shinn, and Rick Irwin. Ex-officio members are Trish Grogan and Darren Mathews.
An initial meeting from 10:00-11:00 on Thursday, October 27th in EBH 240. During the initial meeting we worked on clarifying the scope of the panel, set the agenda for future meetings, and address lines of communications to the campus regarding the panel’s discussions.
If you have particular concerns or comments that you feel the Classified Employee Panel should address, please seek out one of the members of the Panel and ask them to bring your interests forward, or leave a comment here so the Panel can address it through this forum.
