Staff Council

Staff Council gives all SPU staff members an opportunity to be informed, give input, receive recognition, and grow professionally while they are employed by Seattle Pacific University.


The Council serves as a liaison between the staff and administration, seeking opportunities for open communication and growth with the SPU community through forums and events.

Since it began in 1993, Staff Council’s goals have remained the same: to create a sense of community across department lines and to provide a convenient way for the administration to get input from staff on a variety of issues. Comprised of SPU staff members from each VP area, Staff Council also promotes unity among SPU staff members, both exempt and non-exempt.
