Our Mission:

The Staff Council serves to support the diverse staff of the College of Humanities and Sciences by facilitating honest and open communication, thereby providing an avenue for employees to address concerns and generate solutions, make recommendations to the administration regarding classified needs, and provide input to College governance on issues involving the classified staff workforce.

It’s easy to get down in the dumps sometimes, especially when you think no one notices all the hard work you do. Motivation is a tough thing to hold on to. So whenever you’re feeling blue, just come visit your friends at Staff Council and we’ll remind you how awesome you are!

“No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.”
