Staff Council General Election

Why Run Flyer
Staff Council Needs Your Voice!

Members of 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. 

Membership requires:

  • Attendance and participation at monthly meetings
  • Participation in a Staff Council standing committee
  • Representation and advocacy for staff colleagues
  • Becoming informed about current university issues, especially those relating to staff
  • Communication with colleagues about university issues
  • Participation in Staff Council activities and events

How long is the commitment?

Staff Council members serve a two-year term, for which they must be elected by staff peers. 

How do I get elected? 

  • You'll submit a brief (no more than 250 word) summary about yourself, including:
    • Your work history at DePaul
    • Your reasons for wanting to serve on Staff Council
    • Goals you would work towards on Staff Council

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.

When is the next election?

The next Staff Council General Election will take place in Spring 2021.
