Staff Council

The Staff Council will build community, identify concerns, and advocate for the needs, vision, and well-being of all USF staff in service of the mission and vision of USF.

Mission Statement

The Staff Council is committed to serving the interests and concerns of all staff members by contributing their voices into campus conversations on non-collective bargaining issues.

We will act as a conduit to engage and support our fellow staff members and the surrounding community, empowering excellence through growth and learning opportunities, staff recognition, workshops, trainings & events, and collaborative partnerships that promote and enhance our experience at USF.

As inclusive representatives we will actively participate in shared governance to facilitate positive and collegial communication in support of the university's mission, vision, and strategic plan.

Vision Statement

The vision of the staff council is to be an inclusive voice for all staff members at USF and to be a deliberative body offering appropriate recommendations to the University President and Cabinet that address staff concerns while providing enriching and informative experiences for staff to better contribute towards the university’s mission, vision and strategic plan.


  1. Staff Council will be an inclusive and transparent voice for all staff.
  2. Staff Council will uplift the voice for staff and enhance collaboration with administrators via recommendations on university-wide decision-making that improves transparency, especially regarding large-scale/high-impact policy decisions such as financial decisions and university-wide policies.
  3. Staff Council will actively support programs that improve staff recognition, retention, and well being.
