Staff Council represent all staff across the university to make a difference at DePaul. We all work here - let's work together to make it an enriched and informed community. Staff Council is seeking staff members who represent all areas of the university, bring different perspectives and experiences, and who can be the voice for staff colleagues.
Staff Council members serve a two-year term, for which they must be elected by staff peers.
The information you share will be included on the election ballots sent to university staff.
You will also need to submit a Staff Council Candidacy Signature form containing signatures from at least ten (10) members of the staff community who support your intentions to run for Staff Council and permission from your supervisor.
The staff endorsement, supervisor approval form, and the online submission including the statement about yourself are due by
