Welcome AU Staffers!
Welcome to the Staff Council website. Your elected 2013-2014 Staff Council Liaisons are honored to have the opportunity to serve and represent you this year. Staff Council is the preeminent vehicle for full-time and permanent part-time staff representation to the larger administration. We are also here as staff’s support and a forum for advocacy, service, community building, and information sharing.
Over the years we have introduced several campus improvements such as our staff’s annual 10-day “winter break.” We have also taken part in other important successes such as creating a tobacco-free campus, securing a 10-year contract with our new dining service vendor Aramark, and bringing AU staff together as a community for our annual Fall Luncheon.
We are proud to support AU’s commitment to public service while enriching AU Staff’s workplace experience through our annual service events. These have included our semi-annual Book & Media Swaps, Professional Clothing Drive, Dollar Drive and Winter Wear Drive. Since our founding, we’ve raised thousands of dollars for local charities, donated hundreds of warm clothes to A Wider Circle, and contributed thousands of books to Better World Books.
In November 2013, our Fall Luncheon brought more than 425 staff together for food, fun and important campus updates. Our October 2013 survey reached out to more than 500 AU staffers and learned what you thought was important for SC to prioritize for the coming year. We have heard you, and are excited to incorporate your voices into our future activities and events. We will place a particular emphasis on service initiatives, community building activities, and resources for information about being an employee at AU.
We are always open to your suggestions and comments to help strengthen the Council and our staff community, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to connect with us. Additionally, we encourage your participation in our bi-weekly meetings, every first and third Tuesday from 11:30am-1:00pm (see our Events Calendar for full details).
Please continue to visit our website for updates and news on the Council’s activities and events and follow us on our social media outlets- facebook.com/AUstaffcouncil and on Twitter, @AUStaffCouncil.
We hope to build a relationship with you and see you at one of our future events!
