The Staff Advisory Council (StaffAC) was created as a result of input from the staff survey conducted in the fall of 1998. The council is a permanent council made up of staff representing all major areas of the university. The main focus was to establish and enhance communications between the staff and administration. The council meets once a month to convey staff questions and concerns as well as make recommendations for improvements. Staff members who are interested in being a member of this council should submit their names using the Membership Form or contact a council member for more details. Nominations for membership are also encouraged.
