Our 2020 election season was put on hold until the next election cycle in 2021, due to the current COVID19 situation.

We were and continue to be, in unprecedented times, so we felt as a council that keeping our current seats through the 2020 term was the right option. A University Staff Council vote was conducted at our May 12, 2020 meeting to keep all standing council and Exec. members in their current position. The vote passed unanimously. The 2021 election will continue with everyone's current 2019 term and membership.

The University Staff Council (USC) will solicit nominations for the upcoming 2021 USC election. USC is comprised of 13 members. Based on current terms and membership, USC is soliciting nominations for:

  • ONE (1) Administrative Support,
  • ONE (1) Facilities Maintenance, and
  • ONE (1) At-Large

Note: Members of the University Staff Council are allowed to attend all council meetings in pay status, including those employees assigned to work second or third shift. When necessary, arrangements to flex scheduled work hours should be discussed with the direct supervisor. Human Resources will assist with arrangements if needed.

The 2021 elections will be held April 2021. All university staff will receive an email to cast their vote via Qualtrics survey. All university staff are eligible to vote.
