Seeking nominations for Staff Council Representatives

Staff Council is seeking nominations for representatives in Blocks 1, 3, and 5 to serve from June 2019 thru May 2021! Not sure what block you're in? Check out our Representatives page for a listing of all departments and divisions for each block. 

Staff Council is also seeking nominations from Non-Exempt employees only for Block 4 to serve for one year from June 2019 thru May 2020.

As a Staff Council representative, you will be a partner in RIT’s system of shared governance. You will meet with staff representatives from all areas of RIT, have an opportunity to hear from campus leaders and contribute your ideas on issues impacting RIT staff now and in the future. Any regular full-time or part-time, exempt or non-exempt Staff employee may nominate themselves or other Staff from their block. Even if you recently started working at RIT, you can still participate. This is a great way to learn more about the University and meet people from across campus. Representatives attend bi-weekly Staff Council meetings (4-5 hours per month). All nominees will be contacted for permission to place their names on the ballot.

Nominations can now be submitted three ways:

If you are a staff member in blocks 1, 3, 4 or 5 check your email for an email from Staff Council. Use the Qualtrics survey link in the email to submit your nomination.

You can also stop by the Staff Council office to submit a paper nomination form https://www.rit.edu/staffcouncil/

Nominations may be made via Staff Council voicemail at 475-7656.

Nominations will be open until 5:00 pm on Friday, March 15. Thank you for your participation in shared governance at RIT!
