Staff Advisory Committee

The Staff Advisory Committee (SAC) is elected to communicate the interests, opinions and concerns of the non-exempt (hourly) staff to the Administrative Executive Committee (AEC). The SAC is comprised of nine non-exempt employees who are elected by their peers to serve a two-year term of office. SAC meets regularly and members of the campus community are welcome to attend.

The SAC meets the first Wednesday of each month from noon – 1 p.m. (changed meeting days as of 09/01/21).  Meetings are open to members of the campus community.  If you have a suggestion, concern, or wish to attend a virtual meeting please contact a member of SAC for the link.
