Staff Advisory Council News

Staff Advisory Council Kicks off a New Year!  It’s January 2018 and that means that SAC is ready for a new year of promoting collaboration and communication throughout the University.  The SAC is “an elected body of classified, wage, and administrative staff whose purpose is to promote collaboration and ensure open communication channels throughout all levels of the University. The council provides an avenue for employee input and feedback and a means of participating in the design, development, and implementation of University programs, projects, and services. It also strengthens employee awareness of critical issues and provides a valuable perspective for the University community and administration on matters of significant concern to wage, classified, and administrative staff.”  To learn more about the SAC and its members, please go to http://sac.umwblogs.org.
