Seattle University Staff Council

New Staff Council Began Meeting in March 2019

The purpose of the Seattle University Staff Council (SUSC) is to serve as a formal representative voice of our diverse and intersectional staff community. The Staff Council will advocate on behalf of staff and make recommendations to University leadership, including the President's Cabinet, on matters which impact staff including Seattle University culture. To ensure a positive environment and the personal and professional growth of all staff, SUSC will partner to develop opportunities for staff across all levels and departments.

Steering Committee Update

As you are aware, we formed a steering committee this past Fall to research and make recommendations on the formation of a Staff Advisory Council (SAC) for Seattle University. A few months ago we received feedback this committee lacked broad representation of staff members on campus. As a result, we committed to adding additional representation and had a great response. Twenty-five additional staff members expressed interest in participating on the SAC steering committee, of which, we selected an additional six members to join this formation group.

Seeking additional members for steering committee

The formation of a Staff Advisory Council would bring a formal body and voice for all staff across our campus. As you may know, a steering committee of seven people was formed and began work in the fall researching a staff council formation and election processes at other AJC schools. There was a need identified to broaden the representation of the steering committee to better represent a broader demographic of staff across campus. We are soliciting for additional members to be part of the steering committee.
