Cura Day of Appreciation

Wednesday, 14 December, 2016

Faculty and staff are invited to share stories of appreciation and gratitude for their colleagues on the Cura Day of Appreciation, Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Each member of the SLU community shares their gifts and talents with the world every day. These gifts and talents are shared through actions that go above and beyond what is expected. On the Cura Day of Appreciation, faculty and staff will share meaningful positive stories about the impact their colleagues have had.

Beginning at 7 a.m. and throughout the morning, faculty and staff are encouraged to stop by the Allied Health Professions Building Multipurpose Room (south campus) to receive a SLU Sparks notepad and write at least two notes to their colleagues. 
From 7:30 to 11:30 a.m., SLU Sparks notepads and pens will also be distributed at the Wool Center lobby (north campus). 

Electronic SLU Sparks can also be sent by clicking here.

At 12:30 p.m., faculty and staff can return to the Allied Health Building Multipurpose Room for a program, at which individuals will have the opportunity to share stories of appreciation for their colleagues. The program will include brief opening remarks, and then the floor will be open for faculty and staff to recognize each other by sharing their notes of gratitude with those in attendance. Submit an electronic SLU Spark beforehand and bring a copy of it to the program, or bring the notes written earlier in the day to share. Even if you do not have a story to share, come hear about the outstanding contributions of the members of the SLU community.

Light beverages and cookies will be provided at the program at 12:30 p.m.

The best way to spread workplace cheer is sharing a special note with a peer. Share what makes your colleagues special on the Cura Day of Appreciation.

About Cura: The Cura program is a response to the SLU community's stated desire to build and sustain a positive workplace culture. We hope that all members of the SLU community will contribute to a culture of understanding, respect and appreciation for the people with whom we work and interact, and to inspire a collaborative and collegial working, learning and social environment.
