The Staff Council strives to improve the employment, general welfare, work environment, opportunities, and policies and procedures that affect staff.

Enhancing Staff Communication

The Staff Council focuses on enhancing internal communication among staff on all campuses, as well as with the local communities. 

Enhancing Staff Communication

The Staff Council works to promote and provide organizational and professional development opportunities to staff.


The purpose and mission of the TTUHSC-SOP Staff Council is to serve as a voice for SOP staff, to advise the Dean of TTUHSC-SOP on the working climate, and to raise issues and concerns of staff. The Staff Council also commit to support staff through various activities and initiatives.


Increase visibility
The Staff Council strives to reach its constituents through its personal engagement and communication on social media platforms, emails and other school platforms.

Increase a sense of community
The Staff Council understands the importance of building a strong sense of community not only between staff, but between staff and other groups on campus. We are working to enhance a sense of pride in who staff are, what staff do, and the important role staff play in the success of TTUHSC- SOP. Growing this sense of community and connection with TTUHSC-SOP will have a real and lasting effect on staff morale and job satisfaction.
