Staff Council represents all staff members at the college. Representatives from each division are elected by their colleagues and serve two-year terms.

Staff Council members advise the college president and other key administrators in matters of interest to the staff community, while fostering strong workplace relationships and furthering the strategic mission of the college through social networking, cross-campus event engagement, and special projects designed to heighten awareness around benefits available to staff as members of the Davidson community.

The overarching strategic goal of Staff Council is to enhance staff engagement with all facets of the college, strengthen community, and celebrate staff contributions to Davidson College.

Staff Council Representatives

Representatives serve as a liaison to their respective areas of the college, welcome and inform new staff in their division, attend all Staff Council meetings, and serve on a committee, as needed.
