Wilkes University


Join the Wilkes Staff Group for the Big Event and Glow Run

The University Staff Advisory Committee (USAC) has put together a team for the Big Event - a single day of University wide community service. This year, USAC is sponsoring a "Wilkes Staff" Team to help support the students in their effort, support our strategic plan initiative to redevelop downtown Wilkes-Barre, and to spend a day interacting with students and other staff outside of our offices for a good cause. This year's Big Event is taking place on Saturday, April 29. Registration is at 7:30 a.m. and service will run until about noon with a barbecue to follow on campus. If you are not able to commit the whole morning, please consider helping out with registration. If you are interested in helping with registration, please contact Katelyn Jimison (katelyn.jimison@wilkes.edu). Questions about joining the Wilkes Staff team, contact Jamie Miller (jamie.miller1@wilkes.edu). 

Additionally, on the evening of April 29, Wilkes is sponsoring the Glow Run - a night time 5K to benefit suicide awareness. Registration begins at 7 p.m. with the race starting at 8:30 p.m. The cost is $15 and you can register the night of the event or in the SUB during club hours. Any questions please contact Dylan Fox (dylan.fox@wilkes.edu). 

Please consider supporting these two outstanding, student run community outreach programs. We hope to see you there!
