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 Rules.
