About Us

The USC represents the interests of the more than 10,000 staff at Texas A&M University in communicating with administrators, identifying and addressing issues that impact staff, making recommendations to the university president, and interacting with other organizations.

The USC holds at least one university-wide forum each year.

Our mission: The University Staff Council cultivates a collaborative work environment for Texas A&M staff under the Office of the President through quality representation, impactful service, innovative programs, and open workplace communications.

Our vision: Staff feel supported, included and valued in this environment where we practice respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity and selfless service.


The University Staff Advisory Council Task Force was formed in the fall of 2007. Its purpose was to collect staff expectations and goals for the planned staff advisory council and to provide recommendations to Interim President Davis on how to move forward in establishing the council. Since its establishment, the council continues to discuss issues that impact staff and serve as a source of advice to the Office of the President.


The council will provide a voice and integrate staff perspective by:

  • Acting as a conduit for two-way communication between staff and administration.
  • Engaging staff and bringing their interests before the administration.
  • Identifying university issues and their impact on staff.
  • Exploring and researching possible solutions.
  • Providing options and recommendations to the President.
  • Interacting with other councils.

The University Staff Council will not act in an advocacy role in any specific employee/employer policy matter or dispute within the University, nor will it assume the role of arbitrator in any such matter. Employees are encouraged to work directly with their supervisor or management personnel, or their appropriate Human Resources office, if issues are specific to their personal situation. Employees submitting inquiries to this website should be aware that an inquiry will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the University Staff Council for response.
