We are members of Trinity's exempt staff elected to represent the staff voice within the shared governance of the college.
There are currently 15 members on the council from all major divisions on campus. We meet bimonthly to discuss current initiatives relevant to staff interests. Exempt Staff Council ensures proper representation to various organizational committees such as the Planning and Budget Council, Benefits Committee, and the Facilities Committee.
The Exempt Staff Council has developed a racial equity action plan, helping to ensure our actions (the actions of individual staff/departments/groups) do not perpetuate a system of advantages based on race.
Each year members of the Exempt Staff Council discuss priorities we want to focus on within our group and as part of campus wide governance committees. This year we chose to focus primarily on developing a Racial Equity Action plan. Additionally, we want to play a meaningful part in an upcoming Compensation Planning study that Human Resources is leading.
Two surveys are coming back for staff, the Campus Climate Survey and the Employee Satisfaction Survey. Take a look at the 2019 results of the Campus Climate Survey presented by Dr. Anita Davis & Mr. David Andres (04).
The Staff Ombuds Policy ensures that staff have a neutral, independent, confidential and informal resource who provides assistance in identifying options for addressing and/or resolving workplace employment-related issues and conflicts. Our current Ombuds is Kristin Bierly Magendantz - Director of Faculty Grants & Sponsored Research
