Dear Colleagues,

We have recently partnered with Aramark to give out Chick-fil-a gift cards to all faculty/staff who have received a satisfactory or higher rating on their last performance review.

The card value will range from 5$- 25$ based on the last review. Please review the link below to see if your name is on the list. If it is please pick up your gift card from Human Resources building.
