Events & Awards
Creating Community Connections
An essential element of the Staff Advisory Council's mission centers around events that encourage community among staff members and throughout campus. In partnership with Human Resources & Inclusive Community, we also organize and select annual awards presented to staff members who excel in their professional positions.
Staff Senate Business Meetings
The Staff Senate meets most months on second Wednesdays at noon. These meetings are generally open to the University community and include time to address any community business that might be brought forward. Though not required, if you have a topic to bring to Staff Senate, we encourage you to contact us before our next meeting to have it added to the agenda.
Note that some meetings may have time that is closed to community members for discussion of sensitive topics.
Upcoming meetings and links to register for them are listed below as information is made available.
The annual Staff Awards are a collaboration between SAC and Human Resources & Inclusive Community.
