What is UArizona Staff Council?

Vital Contributors to the UA Community

UArizona Staff Council is the University of Arizona shared governance organization representing University and Classified Staff in campus shared governance. Formed after the merger of the Appointed Professionals Advisory Council (APAC) and Classified Staff Council (CSC) in 2021, UArizona Staff Council (UASC) has an organized structure of officers and committees, and meets monthly.  

UArizona Staff Council's specific activities are reviewed each year to support the Council's important goals of:

  1. favorably influencing upper senior administration;
  2. maximizing staff visibility on campus;
  3. providing staff representation on more than 20 campus committees;
  4. helping to support Awards for Excellence and other employee recognition events; and,
  5. promoting professional development opportunities

UArizona Staff Council is continually working to enhance the University workplace. Watch for updates to our goals and priorities on our website.
