Staff Appreciation Week

Our success at TAMUG is a direct result of the numerous and diverse contributions of our staff, day in and day out, most often behind the scenes. Universities like ours earn their stature in the world because of their people. To honor our staff, we are again hosting the Staff Appreciation Week at Texas A&M University at Galveston! Presented by the TAMUG Staff Council, Office of the Vice President, Human Resources, SSC Services for Education and Chartwells.

Remember to take photos during the week's events and tag them with #SAW2017 on social media and share them on the SAW Facebook Event page.

Staff Emergency Fund

We have all experienced a sudden or unexpected expense that can create both emotional and financial obstacles.  The Staff Emergency Fund (SEF) helps Texas A&M Staff members who are unable to make ends meet during a difficult time.  By supporting the SEF, you can help make a difference, when help is needed most.

There will be opportunities to give at each of the SAW2017 events or you may want to sign up for an automatic payroll deduction by enrolling in the Lead by Example campaign.
