The Professional Staff Council, hereafter referred to as the Council, is an elected body of professional staff employees whose purpose is to provide a forum through which common concerns and opinions regarding University matters may be voiced. Matters concerning the policies and programs of the University which affect this group of employees directly or indirectly will be addressed. The Council will disseminate information to the General Membership that may be of interest to them and, where appropriate, solicit opinions from the professional staff General Membership. The Council will submit its concerns, recommendations, and requests to the Vice President through the Director of Human Resources.
