Staff Council

A Letter from Our Executive Committee

Dear Colleagues,

We welcomed a new group of Staff Council representatives this summer, and have already been planning for the year ahead. Please view our members page to review this year’s members, their constituencies, and the committees they are a part of. To stay connected with Staff Council events, please like us on Facebook.

Staff Council Fall Reception

Dear Colleagues, This summer, Staff Council welcomed five new Staff Council liaisons and started planning upcoming events and initiatives for the year ahead. Our members page highlights your 2016-2017 Staff Council liaisons, their constituencies, and the committees they participate in to serve and support our community. This year, we’re excited to continue traditions such as our book and media swaps and the annual Fall Reception. As we get closer to each event, please be on the lookout for communications from your Staff Council liaison.  

Save the Dates: 

• Our first book and media swap will take place in October.  

• The Staff Council Fall Reception will take place on October 26.  

We’re equally excited to begin new traditions in the spirit of education and advocacy, hosting monthly Staff Council Lunch and Learns, continuing the spirit of our Inaugural Personnel Conference, and we are eagerly beginning the planning for the next year’s Personnel Conference!  

This year we look forward to continuing to build off of advocacy efforts and providing forums for information around practices that are important to you. As well as continuing to keep you informed around the continued search for American University’s next president. 

If you have ideas for other events or service opportunities or are interested in interacting more with Staff Council, we welcome you to attend our meetings held every first and third Tuesday of every month from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Check the FourWinds monitors and Today@AU for dates and locations.  

You can also stay connected with us by following us on Facebook and visiting our website.
