The Staff Council also promotes recognition of staff contributions to the mission of the University and recommends individuals to serve on committees where policies and procedures affecting staff will be discussed.
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.
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.
Staff Council needs your help to be successful! Please participate in the nomination and election process and attend scheduled Staff Council Meetings.
Greetings Fellow UHD Staff,
My name is Caroline Smith and I am grateful to serve as your Staff Council president for the 2022 academic year. A double-alum of UHD, I also work as the Assistant Director of the Center for Community Engagement and an adjunct faculty member in the Marilyn Davies College of Business. I’d like to thank my colleagues for electing me president and trusting me to represent you and advocate on behalf of staff. I am honored and humbled by your support.
I will use my experience in collaboration and communication to listen to staff, and to report all feedback. I believe Staff Council members are most effective when they're serving as a two-way avenue for information between staff and administrators.
You can get involved with Staff Council and make an impact! There's always more to be done as we work to continuously improve morale and advocate for the rights of staff. We invite you to participate at any level you possible. There are five Standing Committees and other Ad Hoc Committees that meet to do the work where the rubber meets the road. Any interested staff member can join a committee and we hope you will consider joining one that interests you.
Thank you for the opportunity to represent you, and I look forward to working together.
