Staff Council

Who We Are


Staff Council membership (PDF) is comprised of selected members from nineteen designated geographic areas on campus, plus seven ex-officio members.

  • Each geographical area is served by at least one Staff Council member who is a non-academic employee of CSU, Chico, the Associated Students or Research Foundation and employed at least half-time or greater.  
  • Members sit on one of four standing committees, performing the duties of each as described in the Bylaws: Ways and Means, Service Projects, Staff Recognition, and Governance.
  • Staff Council Leadership is elected yearly from within the Council membership.
  • The group of Ex-officio members (PDF) can include a retired staff representative. A call for interested participants is placed each spring to serve the following academic year.
