About USAC

The University Staff Advisory Council consists of 22 representatives elected by staff members within major divisions and departments of the University.

Representation for each division or department is based upon the number of staff and a roughly 1:60 ratio. Nominations are solicited from all staff. Division or department staff directly elect the members who represent their campus unit at the Council. The Associate Vice President for Human Resources; Manager, Events and Property Services; and the immediate past USAC chair serve as non-voting ex officio members of the Council.

USAC is not vested with binding authority, but serves to provide input and recommendations to the administration regarding staff interests and concerns as they bear upon the life and operation of the institution. USAC is represented on Planning and Priorities and on some hiring committees, as well as acting as a sounding board for various events like SpringFest, Winter Celebration, etc.
