Staff Council also offers support and promotion to the following campus programs and events, not directly planned or coordinated by Staff Council:

Shared Governance

Each fall, staff are encouraged to participate in the shared governance process by serving on a University committee. Participation provides the opportunity to have a voice in the affairs of the university, working with students as well as colleagues and associates from all areas of campus and of the 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 appointments.

Retired Staff

Retired staff are a valuable resource to our campus. Staff Council welcomes their participation in all Council activities.
