The Staff Advisory Committee connects Saint Louis University staff to important information and advises on University policy that would affect staff.
In accordance with the Catholic Jesuit identity of Saint Louis University, the purpose of the Staff Advisory Committee shall be to communicate the interests and concerns of a diverse University staff; to function in an advisory capacity in the development, review and implementation of University policies which affect staff; to provide a means of communication with the administration, faculty, and students, and support them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the staff; and to create and nurture a spirit of unity among all employees at the University.
The Staff Advisory Committee was created in September 1992 as the Human Resources Advisory Committee (HRAC). It was officially recognized by the Saint Louis University administration as a sub-committee of the Human Resources Board and renamed the Staff Advisory Committee (SAC) in July 1995.
To date, the Staff Advisory Committee has recommended staff to serve on a number of SLU committees and human resources sub-committees considering FMLA Leave, SmokeFree SLU, and FlexTime/Timekeeping. In addition, the committee has suggested staff for diversity training forums, requested the change in jury duty pay, made recommendations in the corrective counseling policy, raised concerns about policies regarding internal promotional/transfer request procedures improving communication to internal applicants, provided key input on the staff position eliminating policy, and initiated the SLUStars program to recognize deserving staff.
