The Staff Advisory Council (Staff AC) was formed in 1998 and is a permanent council comprised of staff representing all major areas of the university. The main focus is to foster open communication between the staff and administration. This council meets monthly to discuss matters of importance to staff and develop strategies for improvement. 


The Staff AC is a group of staff representatives and advocates who promote the University’s Mission by fostering a sense of campus community, creating strategies to enhance staff morale, advising campus leadership on matters relating to and affecting the staff of Furman, and providing a voice in campus issues. Whenever possible, the decisions of the Council shall be reached by consensus and supported by parliamentary vote. The Staff AC uses Furman’s Vision Statement as a guiding principle.
