The Government Relations Committee formulates, advocates for and helps implement activities, literature and programs educating the governmental and general communities as to staff issues and proposes possible remedies to problems generated by those issues. The committee also tracks and reports on legislative issues that affect the university staff, and, where possible as the legislative process allows, makes recommendations to the Staff Council concerning those issues. The committee also helps plan and implement avenues to encourage and support staff in exercising their civic rights and responsibilities.
This Committee meets as needed. For more information about this Committee, please contact the Staff Council Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
