University Staff Council hosts at least one university-wide open forum each year. 

On February 27, 2020 the University Staff Council held the Spring Leadership Panel as their annual forum. The panel was introduced by Dr. C.J. Woods, associate vice president and chief of staff.

The panelists were:

  • Dr. Jeff Risinger, Vice President for Human Resources & Organizational Effectiveness
  • Ms. M. Dee Childs, Vice President of Information Technology & Chief Information Officer
  • Ms. Jennifer Smith, Assistant Vice President for Compliance and Title IX Officer
