Shared Governance

Each fall, staff are encouraged to participate in the shared governance process by serving on a university committee. Participation provides opportunity for a voice in the affairs of the university, working with students, as well as colleagues and associates from all facets of our university and local community. A list of committees and available opportunities is distributed to all staff. Based upon requests received, the Staff Council Executive Committee recommends employees for committee service to the University President, with the president making final appointment.

Currently Staff Council is seeking participation for the 2015-2016 remaining open committees which are in need of staff representation.  Fill out the form that is included on the list of committees, and submit to the Staff Council Office (, zip 160, no later than Monday September, 28th, 2015.

Employees are encouraged to obtain supervisory approval prior to requesting an appointment.
