Greetings from the Employee Assembly!

Tanya Grove

I’m Tanya Grove, chair of the Employee Assembly (EA) and a staff member in the Department of Performing and Media Arts.  I joined the EA because I wanted to bring forward issues of importance to staff and I’m proud to be part of the group that initiated the Employee Engagement Survey. 

Working in partnership with university leadership on key issues of concern has been a wonderful opportunity to support my staff colleagues. I am serving in my second term on the assembly and in my third year as chair, and I’m proud of the work that the assembly has done in that time.  In addition to the survey, EA members have worked on changing the university calendar to provide an additional staff holiday for Martin Luther King Day, supported the CARE (Cornellians Aiding and Responding to Employees) Fund annual auction and coordinated the President’s Annual Address to Staff. 

EA meetings are open to all Cornell staff members and are held the first and third Wednesday of each month.  On behalf of my EA colleagues, I invite you to join us at a future meeting or to contact any one of us if you have an issue you would like to bring to our attention.  Our schedule and contact information can be found at
