Nominations OPEN for Staff Council membership & staff positions on faculty committees

A message from the University Staff Council: 

To all staff and administrative faculty members:

The University Staff Council (USC) – formerly, the Staff Advisory Council (SAC) – is now accepting nominations to fill a number of positions for representation on three committees:

  • University Staff Council– seven openings (two administrative/professional faculty, five classified). The USC is an important communication resource, reference and voice for all staff. So that our representation reflects all parts of the UMW community, nominations are open to all staff and administrative faculty members across campus.
  • University Budget Advisory Committee(UBAC) – three openings for this Faculty Council committee. Budget and/or finance experience is preferred but not required for at least one of the available openings. 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– one opening for this Faculty Council committee. Members work 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.

Your USC President
