Staff Council at CMU
Staff Council is comprised of elected representatives who work closely with university administration to address issues and develop best solutions for staff and the university community. Representatives are elected to a two-year term of service and are expected to actively engage their constituents and participate in Staff Council initiatives. Staff Council ensures that all schools and campus units are represented.
29th Annual Food Drive
CMU's Annual Food Drive is one important way that we demonstrate our commitment to the community, and Staff Council is proud to spearhead this initiative each year. For nearly three decades, Carnegie Mellon has run one of the highest grossing food drives in the city of Pittsburgh, contributing more than $423,106 and over 78 tons of nonperishables to support those in need.
The Office of Human Resources is supporting the university's decision to offer temporary child care services due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19. Based on recommendations from the Family Care Advisory Committee and in response to the recent Temporary Child Care Needs Survey, these services will offer families additional flexibility.
Members of the Carnegie Mellon community in Pittsburgh can use CareLink to find care givers or find a job. If you need a caregiver, you can post your request on the CareLink website. If you want to provide services, you can post your resume and search available jobs. Community members also can use CareLink to share or exchange services.
The Office of Human Resources (OHR) leverages FocusU to provide on demand training and as a convenient tool to register for and track participation in instructor-led training sessions. FocusU provides access 24/7 access to video clips, online training, books and job aids. To assist the campus community, OHR has curated a listing of online courses focusing on a diverse set of skills and abilities.
The chief purpose of Staff Council is to examine matters related to all staff, and to formulate recommendations to the university administration regarding staff concerns. Staff Council representatives provide advocacy on behalf of all staff members, and contribute to the vibrancy and well‐being of the entire Carnegie Mellon community.
