Staff Council Committees


Campus & Community Engagement 

The Campus & Community Engagement Committee acts as the catalyst for increasing the awareness and understanding of who Staff Council is and what we do. This committee strives to ensure that information within the council is shared effectively with the campus and public. The committee updates the Staff Council website, creates marketing materials, and edits/distributes the e-Newsletter. The committee also facilitates communication between Staff Council members by maintaining the council's internal Catalyst site.

The Professional Development Committee is focused on offering a variety of professional and personal development sessions throughout the year. We develop our yearly sessions based on the feedback we receive from past and current sessions in order to provide a diverse set of information from topics that staff wants to learn and hear about. Our sessions focus on staff development, personal budgeting and personal wellness.
