About Staff Council

Who are we?
The Staff Council is a 21-member group comprised of administrative, classified, professional, and technical employees of the University of Alaska Anchorage and its community campuses. The Staff Council was formed after the APT and Classified Council merged in the Spring of 2015. The Council is a UAA campus component of the Board of Regents' mandated statewide governance provision. 

What is our purpose?
The purpose of the Council is to provide a forum through which common concerns and opinions regarding University matters may be voiced. The Council offers representative participation towards the solution of problems, formulation and/or revision of policies affecting these employees, their salaries and benefits, working conditions, general services, and services performed, to the extent that these matters are not covered by collective bargaining agreements. The Council will act as a resource, support, and advocate for administrative, classified, professional, and technical employees. The Council serves as an advisory body to the Chancellor in matters concerning administrative, classified, professional, and technical employees.

When do we meet?
Council meetings are held the first Thursday of every month (excluding January) during the academic year from 9:30-111:30 am in ADM 204 (location is subject to change). All meetings are open to the public and UAA employees are encouraged to attend.
