Genesee Staff Council

Facilitating active and direct communication between University staff and senior administration.

A voice and a seat

The Genesee Staff Council was created in 2019 as a partnership between the University’s Human Resources and the Office of Equity and Inclusion. For the first time in the University’s history, staff now have a representative voice and get a seat at the table.

The Genesee Staff Council representatives are a diverse group, serving across 11 non-medical departments.
