Greetings from the University Staff Advisory Council!

December Meeting Highlights

With much excitement, we hosted our first in-person meeting since March 2020!  We hope to continue to offer a hybrid format in the New Year and look forward to seeing you at a meeting in person or via Zoom in 2022!
We began the meeting with USAC Business and Committee Reports.  Committee report highlights include:
  • Spring elections for the even number groups.
  • Discussion of a tuition benefit proposal from the Staff Life Committe.
  • Opportunities to contribute to the Employee Hardship Fund during Holiday Jingle and volunteer opportunities in the new year.
To conclude the meeting, we were honored to have Provost Raver as our Keynote speaker this month.  She discussed the importance staff plays on the success of the university and gave us insight to what she has enjoyed most about her time at Vanderbilt thus far.  Watch the full meeting at the link below.
