Mission & Purpose

Mission

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

Vision

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

 

Purpose

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

  1. Acting as a conduit for two-way communication between staff and administration.
  2. Engaging staff and bringing their interests before the administration.
  3. Identifying university issues and their impact on staff.
  4. Exploring and researching possible solutions.
  5. Providing options and recommendations to the President.
  6. 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.
