Staff Councilor Resources

The Staff Council has been serving UNM's staff since 1990 when it was formed by a Board of Regents mandate. Since that time, we have worked on staff issues that have changed this University. We team with the University administration and the Board of Regents to proactively work on issues that affect both staff and the general UNM community. Now that you've taken the big step of joining the Staff Council, we'd like to help you get started down the path to effectively representing the specific group of employees that have elected you to this position.
