EAC Responds to Employee Concerns

The Council may advise on specific institutional issues and otherwise act at the request of the President. The Council functions in an advisory capacity. The Council will keep staff members informed and, in turn, keep the President and leadership informed of the needs and interests of staff on issues and activities affecting them.
