IN PROMOTION OF EQUITY
(Adapted with permission from electronic communication by Donna Weber)
Chancellor Levin-Stankevich asked Donna Weber, director of Human Resources, to lead our classified staff, limited-term employees and academic staff in identifying perceptions of, and actual inequities across campus employee groups. Ms. Weber was honored and pleased to lead this “Gold Arrow Project Charter,” which is the first of its kind on this campus, and a direct result of the Strategic Planning efforts.
One of the first tasks was to establish a Classified Staff Council (CSC) that would be willing to work with Ms. Weber in supporting the effort and providing a voice for all classified staff and limited-term employees to provide important and valuable input to the UW-Eau Claire administration. This council will bring forth recommendations, ideas for professional development, etc. The previous classified committees (scholarship committees, professional development committee, etc.) are folded into this larger council.
The CSC works with campus leadership to offer an effective partnership with colleagues from all campus employee groups in support of the university's mission. The CSC serves on behalf of all classified staff (represented and non-represented, limited-term and project appointment employees). The CSC coordinates and promotes professional development opportunities through education, training and communication.
