As the second largest constituency after students, and given the vital role they play in all aspects of University operations, the staff at the University of Denver is a critical community on campus. To better serve this population, we are re-developing a range of program and services to engage and support them, including opportunities for individual and departmental learning around Inclusive Excellence. In the meanwhile, below are some campus organizations serving staff:
Staff Advisory Council
The Staff Advisory Council was established to promote unity and cooperation among the staff of the University, providing a means for an exchange and discussion of information among the staff on problems, procedures and policies of the University.
