Staff Council Committees

There are so many ways to get involved in Staff Council without running for a seat. There are folks out there who want to know more and get involved, but don't really know how. Here is an open invitation to join us, in whatever way you can.

Please take a look at the committees and consider where you might be able to share your talents then contact the committee chair.
