Get involved with the CU Boulder Staff Council and make an impact! Most staff know the Council as the folks that hand out free ice cream at the end-of-summer Ice Cream Social, serve up the bacon and eggs at the Staff Appreciation Breakfast, and provide fun, games and snacks at the springtime Field Day—but we do more! The thirty-five Staff Council representatives on the CU Boulder campus meet monthly to advocate for you on a wide variety of issues.
The Council has historically worked hard to be a positive force with resolutions and progress on issues important to staff. We’ve advocated for improvements in the tuition benefit and fought hard to achieve significant advances on paid parental leave for university and classified staff. There’s always more to be done as we work to continuously improve morale and advocate for the rights of staff. This year the Council is proud to focus on Diversity and Inclusive Excellence. We invite you to participate at any level you possibly can during this year’s twenty-ninth Diversity and Inclusive Excellence Summit, November 12th and 13th.
The Council’s six standing committees meet monthly to do the work where the rubber meets the road. Any interested member of the CU staff can join a committee, so check out the Staff Council calendar on our website and consider joining a committee that interests you.
As our campus grows in both physical size and employee census, we look to represent our diverse staff to the greatest degree possible. Your involvement on a committee can make a difference, starting now. And in February our Elections Committee will put out a call for nominations to serve on the full Council. Elections will be held later in the spring. We strongly encourage you to start thinking now about serving or nominating a colleague to run for Staff Council. So be Boulder, and be involved!
