University Staff Council opportunities

The University Staff Council is currently accepting nominations for three University committees: University Staff Council, the University Budget Advisory Committee, and the James Farmer Multicultural Center Advisory Committee. So that our representation reflects all parts of the UMW community, we invite you to nominate a deserving colleague(s) or yourself.

  • University Staff Council: seven openings – six Classified, one Wage – for three-year terms. The USC continues to advocate for staff concerns and partner with faculty and administration to tackle issues and build community. We want our representation to reflect all parts of our UMW community and nominations are open to all staff members across the three campuses and at all UMW-affiliated organizations.
  • University Budget Advisory Committee: a Faculty Council committee with three USC openings for one-year terms. Budget/Finance experience is preferred but not required. One available opening is reserved for a non-Finance staff member. UBAC works with campus leadership on short and long-term University budget priorities. These priorities are reviewed, summarized, and presented annually to the UMW President.
  • James Farmer Multicultural Center Advisory Committee: a Faculty Council committee with one USC opening for a one-year term. The committee works with the director and staff of the JFMC on planning and setting priorities, enhancing opportunities for multicultural learning through student programming and leadership development opportunities for all students.

Nominations will close on April 26, 2022, for all three committees. All nominees will be contacted to accept their nomination prior to voting. Voting is scheduled May 3 through May 14.

All UMW community members – staff and faculty – are encouraged to nominate eligible UMW staff members for these committee positions.
