The mission of the Staff Advisory Council (SAC) is to serve as a voice for staff, to gather input, and to advise the president on issues of common concern to administrative and support staff. The council reports directly to the president and also serves as a vehicle for sharing information to the campus community.
The Staff Advisory Council currently meets one to two times a month and is comprised of a diverse group of administrative and support staff representing all non-faculty employees of Wittenberg University.
As initiated by the university president, the key responsibilities of the SAC are:
- to establish and enhance direct communication between the Wittenberg staff and the Office of the President
- to increase levels of awareness and understanding regarding issues that are of concern to Wittenberg staff
- to advocate for staff in the development and implementation of policies and procedures that affect staff morale, working environment and professional welfare
- to contribute to the university's culture of community and recognition of service
