There are several ways you can support UT Dallas staff members and Staff Council.


Representative Positions

Benefits-eligible staff members who have worked for the University for six consecutive months may be nominated to serve on the council as a representative. Anyone may nominate a candidate, or candidates may self-nominate. Campus districts elect representatives to serve two-year terms. Once elected, representatives:

  • Serve on one of four standing committees.
  • May be selected to serve on university-wide committees.
  • May run for the offices of president or vice president, which are elected annually by the council to serve one-year terms.

The goal of the Staff Council Scholarship Fund is to support staff members pursuing academic and vocational programs. Donate online, or consider participating in the following programs.
