Staff Council

Staff Council promotes a positive work environment for all Classified Employees through effectively advocating for our peers in the University’s decision making process. The West Virginia University Staff Council was created to provide the classified staff employees of West Virginia University a means of conveying their concerns on employee-employer relations. This council was formed with recognition that all matters at West Virginia University are governed by state law, by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, and West Virginia University policies and procedures.

Dear fellow Classified Staff,

Staff Council worked diligently on the first round of comments and requested some changes to what was initially presented to us regarding the proposed new Talent & Culture (formerly HR) Rules. With very few exceptions, our requests were accepted so what you will see now is the result of that collaboration. While we may not like all the changes that are on the horizon, we understand that changes are inevitable with the continued revenue cuts from our state legislature for WVU to succeed.

Please take some time to read through the proposed Talent & Culture Rules and provide your own comments to the WVU Board of Governors. You may also email your comments/concerns to Staff Council.

In Mountaineer Spirit,

Lisa A. Martin
