Welcome to the UHD Staff Council

The Staff Council is dedicated to increasing communication, providing staff-requested organizational assistance, and ensuring staff issues, concerns, and interests are relayed to senior University leaders.

Our mission is to act as an advisory body to the President of the University and promote positive and meaningful communication among UHD staff, the President, and the University community in order to achieve the Staff Council’s goal of providing UHD with a collective voice in staff-related University matters.

Over the years, Staff Council and its various committees have performed many services, including reviewing and providing recommendations on issues affecting staff benefits, parking, safety, staff development, and training.

The Council has also instituted, developed, and conducted numerous activities and events, including:

  • An annual forum to foster open dialogue with University administrators.
  • The yearly Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program.
  • Staff Awards (for years of service).
  • "The Edge" (An annual grant award given to staff to promote staff education and self-development.)
  • Staff Excellence Awards Program.
  • Staff Council Fun Awards Program (i.e., "Rookie of the Year," "Whistle While you Work," etc.).


The 2014/15 Staff Council

This year’s Staff Council brings with it significant changes in staff membership and other improvements that provide greater staff services and continued development of UHD as a Major Opportunity Employer.


One of the most substantial developments is an initiative to increase staff participation. To accomplish this, all full-time and part-time, benefits-eligible employees are automatically inducted as UHD Staff Council members and encouraged to attend monthly Council meetings to share issues, concerns, and/or interest items.


In addition, President Flores issued a message encouraging greater staff member participation in Staff Council. To foster this participation, his message asks supervisory staff to provide elevated support and endorsement to subordinate staff members for Council service.

Staff Council needs your help to be successful! Please participate in the nomination and election process (see the Nomination Process Page and Nomination Form for more details.) and attend scheduled Staff Council Meetings.
