Sustainability ERG – Waste Reduction & ‘Don’t Trash It!’

Tuesday, February 6, 2024, 12:00-1:00 p.m. – McCoy Commons, Oaks 212

When we think of waste reduction, we often think of recycling and composting. While these are important, it’s also critical to think about how we can reduce the waste we create in the first place. In this session with Kendra Harrison, Elon’s Waste Reduction and Recycling Manager, we’ll discuss Elon University’s initiatives aimed at waste reduction, including our ‘Don’t Trash It!’ end-of-year move-out program, as well as opportunities to reduce waste in our own lives. Lunch will be provided for registered attendees. Oaks 212 is located in the McCoy Commons building (same building and floor as the Phoenix Office).

The world of social media changes so fast – it’s hard to stay on top of everything. Running a university page can be a lot. Whether you are new to running a page or are a social media veteran, we are here to help. With the help of TLT, we have created social media training modules. We will be discussing what they entail, who they are for, how they should be used, and how we created them. There will also be a discussion of what modules will come in the future. Lunch will be provided for registered attendees. Oaks 212 is located in the McCoy Commons building (same building and floor as the Phoenix Office).

We invite all staff and faculty who are Veterans and interested in learning more about a Veteran ERG to join us for an interest meeting. Any other staff/faculty who would like to learn more about the Veteran ERG are also welcome to attend. If this date/time doesn’t work for you, please contact Ann Flaherty at aflaherty2@elon.edu to receive additional information.

The purpose of the Elon University Veteran Employee Resource Group (ERG) is to create a sense of belonging and community among veteran employees at Elon, helping them to feel supported and engaged with the university.
For those new to Elon, ERGs are initiated by staff or faculty at Elon University around a common interest or shared bond/background and are funded by the Office of Leadership and Professional Development (OLPD). ERGs are employee-led groups formed around common interests, and/or a shared bond or background. These groups are an extension of our programming offerings, providing leadership opportunities for those who wish to participate in, initiate, or lead a group, and fostering a supportive community where all employees can experience a greater sense of belonging.

Lunch will be provided for registered attendees. Oaks 212 is located in the McCoy Commons building (same building and floor as the Phoenix Office).

Caregiver ERG – Combating Loneliness in Seniors

Wednesday, February 21, 2024, 12:00-1:00 p.m. – McCoy Commons, Oaks 207

Loneliness can be described as the discrepancy between a person’s desired and actual social relationship. It’s a unique situation in which a person perceives themselves to be socially isolated even when among other people. This condition causes a person to be irritable, depressed, self-centered, and can lead to a 29% increase in premature mortality. It’s estimated that 1/3 of the population suffers from loneliness and is especially prevalent among seniors. Lunch will be provided for registered attendees. Oaks 207 is located in the McCoy Commons building (same building and floor as the Phoenix Office).
