Staff Council

Purpose or Function: The Staff Council (SC) is an elected body of non-faculty employees. As a recommending and advisory body, the council reports to the Vice President for Finance and Administration and/or the President of the University.  The organization functions in accordance with its constitution.  The Council serves to represent all benefits-eligible employees of the University not currently represented by other bodies of representative governance (i.e., President’s Cabinet and Faculty Senate).

MembershipMembership is defined in the SC Constitution. To be eligible to serve on the Council, prospective representatives must have completed one year of regular, benefits-eligible employment at TAMU-CC prior to the commencement of their elected term of office.  Council representatives are elected to two-year terms defined by fiscal year: September 1 to August 31. Representatives can serve a maximum of two consecutive terms.  Following a year off the Council, former members are again eligible to run for office.  Council membership will be comprised of one representative for every 30 constituents in each of 6 occupational categories with a cap of 10 representatives in any one category.  One representative will be appointed by the Director of the South Texas Institute for the Arts.  A designated representative of the Department of Human Resources will serve as a resource to the Council.
