Staff Council Mission

The Council supports the University mission. In pursuing that mission, the Council seeks to advance such endeavors through visibly active staff participation/involvement both campus-wide and community-wide in a spirit of unity and open communication with other shared governance organizations on campus.

The goals of the Council are to:

  • Advise the University Administration on policies
  • Inform the University community of the activities of the Council
  • Promote University relations within the community of Iowa City and the State of Iowa
  • Collaborate with shared governance organizations on campus, notably the Faculty
  • Senate, Student Government and organizational shared governance groups
  • Promote staff learning through professional development and awards
  • Promote communication and shared governance among staff, central administration, Faculty Senate and Student Government
