The Staff Senate is pleased to share it’s new logo! Designed for us by students in the School of Art, the idea behind the logos is the Staff Senate’s three initiatives–to advocate, appreciate, and educate staff–holding the Mason staff community together. Whenever you see this logo, know that the Staff Senate is working hard to serve your needs!

The biggest congratulations possible for Janet Walker, Work Life & Communications Coordinator, Human Resources/Payroll. Anyone who knows Janet, knows that she is always smiling! That makes sense, since Walker is effusive about her love for Mason. “It’s a caring community, full of fascinating people, doing amazing things. I enjoy coming to work because each day is unique,” she says.
A central aspect of the mission of the Center for the Advancement of Well-Being (CWB) is to contribute to the well-being of our Mason community. CWB is thrilled to offer a summer session of our weekly Yoga for Well-Being practice open to all Mason students, faculty and staff.
“Yoga for Well-Being” is a hatha yoga class carefully themed to deepen one’s experience of an interdisciplinary approach to yoga. This practice includes precise instruction in beginning and intermediate level postures, breathing practices, and guided relaxation. Modifications will be offered to individualize the practice. You will need to bring your own yoga mat and any props you need. All are welcome. Let the instructor know at the beginning of class if this is your first yoga practice or if you have any serious physical limitations.
