What We Do

Staff Council at California State University, Chico, champions for staff and serves the local community through service projects. We plan events to create a positive impact on staff culture and morale, seek out and respond to ideas and suggestions, and help the University administration recognize staff. We work to promote open communication and create a cohesive campus community, ensuring that staff members' voices are heard.
