Staff Assembly

Join a Committee

Staff Assembly has six standing committees which are involved in various aspects of staff life. Each committee has a convener and up to seven members. Some of our committees need additional members. If you are interested in joining any one of the following committees, please contact

  • Employment Affairs
  • Personal & Professional Development
  • Communications
  • Faculty Relations
  • Nominations & Elections
  • Activities & Socials

Why me?

We each offer unique skills, fresh ideas and different points-of-view from which our committees can benefit. We want your input. Plus, volunteering for a committee gives you an outlet for things you are good at but may not have a chance to do in your work. It's a great way to meet people from other offices and we have fun interacting and brainstorming!

Tell me what the Staff Assembly committees actually do?

Staff Assembly's six standing committees work to represent the needs and interests of Butler's staff and communicate that information to the campus community. The committees do everything from supporting staff's professional growth and relationship building to planning social activities, workshops and luncheons, to supporting the assembly's computer and communication needs.

How can I get involved in one of the committees?

Contact anyone on the Executive Committee and let them know of your interest. If you have an interest in a committee that doesn't have a vacancy at that time, we'll hang on to your information in the event that a space becomes available.

Based on input from staff, the Committee created the Top Dawg Award and Campus Sweep, and has made policy recommendations (flex-time; job share, etc.). The committee meets once a month. There may be an additional time commitment on occasion (reviewing policies, researching employment practices at other colleges and universities, assisting in coordination of Campus Sweep, etc.)
