Staff Advisory Council

Staff Advisory Council


Staff Advisory Council works with Human Resources as a consultative body on issues of importance to staff. The Council discusses and provides feedback on institutional policies and practices, and broader issues related to numerous work/life topics.


Members of the Council are selected from a broad cross-section of support and administrative staff on campus. Terms are for three years. Meetings are monthly.

New members are solicited from the community via an all campus memo. Membership is selected by the Council at the first meeting in September.

Staff Advisory Council has 10 members. Membership should be inclusive of as many departments as possible.
