HRS Communication & News

Celebration of Life
Because President Floyd was such a student–focused president, we will hold the official university celebration of life on Wednesday, August 26, after the students return for fall semester. Ginger Druffel and Mary Jenkins, working with the university’s events team, will lead the organization of that event, which will be held in Beasley Coliseum. The President’s office will provide updates as arrangements are finalized.

Resources for Grief
As pointed out in Dan Bernardo, Acting President’s recent message, with the passing of President Floyd we have lost an amazing leader. With that may come many emotions. As a reminder of resources available, below is information regarding our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and other available resources. WSU has a statewide contract with the Employee Assistance Program. WSU employees in Pullman may contact EAP at (509) 335-5759. All non–Pullman WSU employees may contact EAP at 1-(877) 313-4455. Additional information and resources are available at eap.wsu.edu.
