Braves Kickoff Purpose Statement
Braves Kickoff, an annual event for university employees, is designed to embrace UNCP’s uniqueness by fostering a sense of belonging for all, sustain a mission-centered work environment through the cultivation of transparency, support effective communication, enhance operational excellence, and promote a culture of professional development.
Why is Braves Kickoff mandatory?
Braves Kickoff is mandatory because all employees are required to attend training sessions throughout the year, and this opportunity will provide minimal disruption during the course of our academic year. Additionally, it is important for all faculty and staff to gather together to hear our strategic and tactical goals for the coming year from Chancellor Cummings and leaders across campus.
Where is the location, the time and agenda of Braves Kickoff?
Braves Kickoff will be offered in-person in GPAC August 10-11, 2022. The agenda can be found here.
Should I RSVP for the Braves Kickoff event?
As all UNCP faculty and staff are required to attend Braves Kickoff, there is no need to RSVP.
