Our Committees

Our Committees

Volunteer committees are the backbone of the Staff Council and make a positive impact across the university – and beyond.

Committees consist of members, chairs and co-chairs, and UCCS staff members can apply at any time to serve on a committee in one of those three roles. Interested in serving? Reach out to the chair or co-chairs of the committee, listed below. If you are interested in chairing a committee that does not list a contact, reach out to Staff Association President Sarah Long.

Please consider serving on one of the following committees:
