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.
Many thanks to those who attended last week’s open forum on the development of a staff advisory council. With more than 70 people in attendance at the forum there clearly is much energy and interest in creating a council at Seattle University. Through the forum, we appreciated the chance to share what we have learned about staff advisory councils from other Jesuit institutions, to answer questions about Seattle U’s potential council and to receive your feedback and suggestions.

A small group of staff leaders came together from a variety of areas on campus over the past few months to begin staging for a Staff Advisory Council (SAC) at SU. This group’s initial task was to conduct research of applicable AJCU universities to learn how these peer institutions set up their SACs, learn about their purpose, election processes, council composition, term limits, and areas of focus. The goal of this research has been to learn from other institutions as a preliminary step in the process of forming a SAC at Seattle University. We invite you to participate in an open forum on Thursday, January 25, at 1 pm in Bannan 401. We will discuss the research findings and the subsequent preliminary ideas crafted by the group.
