​​The System Administration Staff Council Welcomes You

The University of Texas System Administration Staff Council is charged with fostering a sense of community among staff members and improving communication between UT System Administration and its staff members about issues of particular concern to its employees, including special projects developed by UT System Administration in support of its mission.

Staff Council members volunteer to represent their fellow employees and work on their behalf to improve communication, address employee concerns and, at the request of administration, participate in the development of special projects. Staff Council meets with representatives of the Benefits Advisory Council (BAC) and the Employee Advisory Council  (EAC) to stay informed of matters that concern you. In addition, they meet with the Chancellor and Chief Talent & Innovation Officer regularly to discuss the things that are important to you. 

Staff Council is One Voice. Your Voice.
