STAFF COUNCIL - Serving as a voice and advocate for all staff at UVM since 1971

Staff Council Committees

The Staff Council has four standing committees (Compensation, Benefits, & Budget; Personal and Professional Development; Outreach; Social), an executive board, and a nominating committee. With the exception of the executive and nominating committees, membership is open to all non-represented staff members*, faculty, retirees, and students. You do not need to be an elected Staff Council Representative to participate. Staff Council Representatives are required to participate on at least one standing Committee. If you would like to participate on a committee, please fill out the Committee Membership Application.

Simply click on a committee heading below and you will be redirected to a separate page which contains membership lists, meeting schedules, agendas, minutes, and projects for each committee.

For more information on committees contact the Staff Council Office at 656-4493 or
