Seattle University Staff Council nominations are now open! 

During the nominations period (Tuesday, April 27-Friday, May 7), the campus community is encouraged to nominate themselves or a colleague to run for a seat on the Staff Council. Within the nomination, candidates will be asked to submit a brief statement of interest and photo for the voter’s pamphlet. Submit a nomination here.

The seats up for election for the term July 1, 2021-June 30, 2023 are as follows:  

  • Academic area: 2 exempt and 1 non-exempt 
  • Student Focus area: 1 exempt, 1 non-exempt  
  • Structural area: 1 exempt, 1 non-exempt 
  • At-large members: 2 will be appointed, allowing the council to best represent diverse and underrepresented voices. 

In order to continue the success Staff Council has seen, we need a robust collection of nomination across all staff areas. Please consider nominating yourself or a colleague for Staff Council. 

For more information, about the nomination and election process, the recording of the Election Forum held on April 27th can be found here.
