University of Connecticut Resources for a Respectful Workplace

Something's Happening Committee (SHC)

The “Something’s Happening” Committee’s (SHC) overall goal is to advocate for continued efforts and resources that will create and maintain a respectful, civil, ethical, diverse and safe campus community.  This will require educating employees about policies, procedures and resources that currently exist; providing professional development and skill building for both employees and supervisors around communication and civility in the workplace; identifying the personnel and resources that can influence the necessary climate changes; and affecting a commitment from individuals and the institution to be accountable and responsible for a civil and respectful work environment.
