The University Staff Council was created in 2008 by Father Peter Donohue, O.S.A., Villanova University President, as a group to encourage dialogue and involvement from Villanova University staff members.
As noted in the University Staff Council (USC) Charter, “the USC will be an open forum where, within a spirit of respect and frankness, staff representatives and other colleagues will discuss and address cross-University topics and concerns with respect to community building, job fulfillment, work process improvement, and other issues with the ultimate goal of contributing to the University’s Mission and values.”
Elections for new members occur every two years. Election information will be sent to Administrator of each area represented to announce new members should be elected before January 2013 meeting. Details to follow.
Read Article V of the Charter where it explains the Election of new members. Representatives are limited to two consecutive two year terms.
University Staff Council oversees the distribution of three awards to members of the Villanova University staff. The Above and Beyond Award, Distinguished Service Award and Work Process Improvement Award are presented annually to outstanding members of the Villanova community.
