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.
The election for Seattle University Staff Council is about to begin. All staff will have an opportunity to vote electronically next week, between Jan. 28 and Feb. 1. Today we write to share that the Voters’ Pamphlet is now available. Within the Voters’ Pamphlet, you will find information about all 35 candidates running for staff council within seven distinct categories.

Recognizing that many staff just returned from the holiday break, the deadline for Staff Council nominations has been extended to end of day, Monday, Jan. 14. You still have a bit more time to nominate someone (a colleague or yourself!) that you think makes a difference on campus to run for one of 19 Staff Council seats.

When I announced last week the establishment of the Staff Council at SU, I shared that I would be consulting with the elections committee to select the council’s first president from the Steering Committee that had led the effort to create the council. At yesterday’s event to officially launch the council, I was pleased to announce that Leann Wagele, assistant dean in the School of Law, will be the first Staff Council president. She will serve a 1 ½-year term. After that, the president will be an elected position.
