RAD camp for spring break updates: Staff are interested and overall supportive in the RAD camp option for spring break. I have been working with Jim Todd

jtodd@unm.edu ; Tim Gutierrez tgutierr@unm.edu on the planning options but there might be some limitations in moving forward with the RAD camp option for this spring break.

Leave changes for new employees was presented to the Faculty and Staff benefits committee. This would create a tiered annual leave accrual instead of the standard 21 days.
