All Missouri S&T staff members are welcome to attend and join all open Standing and Special Interest committees. You do not have to be a Staff Council member to take part in Staff Council activities. If you are interested or have suggestions for committees or activities, please do not hesitate to reach out and email us.
The Advocacy Committee exists to represent and promote the interests and concerns of the staff. The committee will strive to advocate for improved working conditions of physical, mental and monetary value. Its members will conduct surveys and forums, and create special interest committees as needed to gather and understand the needs of the Missouri S&T staff members. These responsibilities will contribute to a better community and environment for the campus staff and help with employee retention and development. Meetings are closed to Advocacy Committee Members only due to confidentiality of concerns being discussed. Concerns can be sent directly to the Advocacy Committee Chair.
The Campus Involvement Committee’s purpose is to maintain a connection among staff, campus, and the Rolla community. The members will be responsible for planning and promoting social events, charitable activities, and community service opportunities; along with helping to maintain an active involvement of staff well-being. The committee will strive to build and nurture a strong campus community.
The Communications Committee shall consist of a chair, at least two (2) staff council members, and members from various areas of the University and shall be responsible for promoting and publicizing the activities and accomplishments of the Staff Council by proactively gathering and disseminating information in a timely and effective manner through email, the Staff Council website, University publications (e.g. eConnection), and other appropriate media.
