Casual Day is held, typically, the 1st Friday of the month with Month-long collection. This allows those who wish to donate more time to do so. We will continue to collect items inside the North entry-level of the CATS building (to be monitored frequently).
Staff Senate Casual Day Committee Members:
All employees are invited to participate. Individual or group/office donations are welcome.
Employees are expected to exercise good judgment in their attire and to dress in a manner that is appropriate to the type of work performed. It is important that employees project a professional image to those with whom they interact. Peru State regalia is appropriate, or any shirt that is “Peru Blue” in color. You may also wear a dress shirt with your jeans. Jeans should be in good condition with no rips/tears. Running pants are not acceptable. Items that advertise other colleges and universities are discouraged. If you have questions about appropriate attire, please consult the Peru State College Employee Handbook or contact Human Resources.
Please be mindful that this is each employee's personal choice to engage in the Casual Day cause. We have an opportunity to give back to area organizations through large or small donations, or in collaboration with co-workers. Please only dress casual if you made a donation to the month’s identified cause on the specified date. Also note, that if you have campus commitments in which professional attire would be more suitable, you are still welcome to make a donation.
The Casual Day Committee has formulated a list of organizations throughout the next year for our Casual Day causes. However, if other staff or faculty members are involved in different groups and hear of something unique, please submit your organization and cause for the committee to review and consider modifying the planned schedule. The Casual Day Committee will review suggestions and notify Staff Senate if changes are going to be made. Thank you for your suggestions.
