Right before the semester started, university employees had to attend 2 days of professional development. Faculty, staff and administrators learned about new priorities, plans for the coming year, and accomplishments from last year. Administrators announced the new braves preferred vendors program and raffled-off door prizes. Employees learned they would need to complete Title IX training for sexual assault complaints. There were also breakout sessions on both days about workplace harassment. Before breaking for a boxed lunch, Dana Moore-Lopez from campus recreation, entertained the crowd with a humorous take on getting exercise, for employee wellness.
