Staff Council

The voice for staff at Carnegie Mellon University

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. We will do better work if we learn from the diverse voices in our community. And don’t forget that all of Staff Council’s General Body meetings, as well as the committee meetings, are open to the CMU community with the exception of Benefits, Relations Guidance, and the Governance, Elections, and Membership (GEM) committees.

General Body Meetings

Staff Council general body meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month and are open to all staff. Per the constitution, Staff Council is required to meet 10 times each year.
