Staff Council standing committees serve a special purpose for the Council and are called for as they are needed. Those committees include Membership and Elections, Appointments, Events, Communications, Staff Affairs, and Special Ad Hoc.

The Events Committee is responsible for planning all special campus events for staff, such as the Staff Awards, Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program, and other activities selected and approved by the Staff Council.
The Communications Committee is responsible for Staff Council Orientation, maintenance of the Staff Council bulletin board (located at the 2nd floor garage entrance and updated a minimum of once per quarter), and all external communication, including releases to University media.
