Throughout the year, Human Resources hosts a special half-day event for new faculty and staff called Connections Day.  Connections Day is designed to build comradery and engage new employees of all levels and classifications. It will include presentations, activities, and discussions designed to:

  • Strengthen the connection to the JMU community by meeting and networking with new colleagues from across the university.
  • Gain an understanding of the university’s mission, values, and strategic plan and how employees contribute to JMU’s vision of becoming the national model of the engaged university.
  • Discover JMU’s history and how it influences our campus culture.
  • Hear about resources that support career development.
  • Learn about campus activities, discounts, benefits, and services available to JMU employees.

We are excited to be resuming our in-person Connections Day events for the 2022 calendar year!
