The purpose of the staff council is to act as a vehicle for effective communication between staff and the administration and to enhance awareness and to promote involvement in matters of policy and action that affect staff.

Eligibility: All current staff members at Southwestern University are eligible to submit suggestions to the Staff Suggestion Box. Anonymous suggestions will not be considered.

Guidelines: Suggestions that fall into the following areas will be taken into consideration:
