Staff Conference

Staff Council Members & Assembly Representatives

Staff Assembly serves as an advisory group that provides staff with a forum for communication and community and provides a voice in matters of importance and concern to staff. The group offers opportunities for staff to support one another, participate as a group in community outreach and engagement, and make recommendations to the university's president and the administration in support of staff needs and the university's mission.

There is staff representation from all areas of the university, including:

  • Academic Affairs
  • Access and Enrollment Management
