Committee considers Drescher grant requests
Potsdam Chapter President Laura Rhoads, chair of the Labor/Management Committee on Affirmative Action/Diversity, shares information with committee member Robert Compton of Oneonta at a Sept. 10 meeting at UUPs headquarters.
Committee members met to review proposals for the Nuala McGann Drescher Affirmative Action/Diversity Leave grant. The meeting was also attended by statewide VP for Academics Fred Floss and Wendy Gordon of Upstate Medical University.
The committee is charged with reviewing and developing recommendations on matters of equal employment and affirmative action concerning minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and Vietnam era veterans. Besides the Drescher grant, the committee has two other funding programs: Grants for Employees with Disabilities, and Campus Grants.
