Open/Closed: Staff Council President Jillian Reddish said via email Aug. 22 that with the exception of open All-Staff Meetings, monthly Staff Council meetings are “closed to non-Staff Council members due to the planning nature of the meetings and the fact that the Council is not a governing body. Students can request copies of the meeting minutes.”
Reddish added, “Students are welcome to attend our open All-Staff Meetings, which are held quarterly but are not all scheduled at this time. Announcements are posted at least 3 days prior to meetings, although they are usually announced over a week ahead of time.”
