Staff from the entire Smith community are welcome and encouraged to join Staff Council committees.

The Staff Council has six standing committees. Each Staff Council member is expected to serve on and attend all meetings of their respective committee.

Committee Chairs

The chairperson of each committee is elected by committee members. In addition to planning and running meetings, the chair is responsible for reporting regularly on the committee's work to the full Staff Council. All committee chairs also serve on the Staff Council steering committee.

Ad Hoc Committees

The Staff Council creates ad hoc committees as the need arises. Ad hoc committees have broad representation; employees who are directly involved in an issue are represented.
