Appreciation and Recognition Committee

Vision: Appreciate and recognize Facilities Management members for their valiant efforts in dedicated service to the campus community.

Mission: As ARC members, we will show appreciation and recognition to Facilities Management members for their good work ethics and desire for customer satisfaction through hard work and dedicated service.


The ARC coordinates events such as the annual Holiday Luncheon, Custodial Appreciation Reception, Resident Move-In Appreciation Luncheon, Work Safety Celebrations and retirement celebrations, just to name a few. The committee recognizes valued staff on an individual level with handwritten and signed cards to celebrate birthdays and work anniversaries, as well as cards of sympathy, get-well wishes, and support in times of need. These activities are funded through generous individual contributions to the Employee Appreciation Fund (R873FM), established through the College of Charleston Foundation. Facilities Management team members may nominate peers or themselves to serve on the committee. Ideas, questions, and comments are always welcomed.
