University Staff Council and Committee Elections 2023

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

  • University Staff Council – eight openings: six AP, one Classified, and one Wage – 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 campus and at all UMW-affiliated organizations.
  • University Budget Advisory Committee – a Faculty Council committee – three 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 – one 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.

Thank you for your thoughtful participation.
