The University of Iowa Staff Council Education and University Relations committees are happy to share this brochure “PDF iconInterested in Starting a Local Shared Governance Group?” with the greater University of Iowa community.  Available to all University of Iowa colleges and departments, our brochure is designed to promote the introduction of staff councils at the local levels, providing resources for implementation and support, and acquainting those with established shared governance bodies at both the University campus-wide level and local college and organizations levels.  Sample materials, and support are available from all members of the Education and University Relations committees of the UI Staff Council or from the UI Staff Council Office.

The role of a local staff council is to advocate on behalf of represented staff, advise the University Administration, and to promote the University.
