The UM Staff Advisory Council is accepting nominations for the upcoming term that begins in October. There are three openings for exempt and non-exempt staff members. Employees elected to the Council will serve a three-year term. Nominations are due August 14, 2015.

The Council provides an opportunity for staff to communicate with UM Administration. You can be a voice for yourself and co-workers by becoming a part of the UM Staff Advisory Council. Meetings occur once a month and are scheduled for 2 hours. During our monthly meetings we discuss current issues impacting UM employees, with regular updates from the VP of Human Resources. We also plan staff recognition and appreciation activities like Trivia Day and the Staff Picnic. As a member of the Council you will meet colleagues from other departments and broaden your knowledge of the UM System as a whole.   

Please take a moment to consider submitting a nomination for yourself or for someone you think would make a good addition to the Council. If you submit someone else’s name, please confirm with them ahead of time that they will accept the nomination. If we receive more nominations than the four vacancies, we will have an electronic election. Again, all nominations are due August 14, 2015.

To nominate, include the following information in an e-mail to

  1. Nominee’s Name

  2. Nominee’s Department

  3. Your Name (if you are nominating someone else)

Feel free to email if you have any other questions about the nomination process or serving on Council.
