Staff Council

About Staff Council

Staff Assembly was formed following a task force study in 1990. Staff Assembly consists of three groups:

  • Staff Assembly (all staff members of UM-Flint)
  • Staff Council (elected UM-Flint staff)
  • Staff Council Advisor (Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance)

The Staff Assembly and the Staff Council stimulate and maintain a spirit of unity and open communication between the university support personnel and the administration of the University of Michigan-Flint.

Our Charter establishes the guidelines for procedures under which these bodies will function.

Goals

  • Provide open communication with the campus between staff and administration.
  • Be the voice to the Administration for channeling concerns by suggesting proposals and solutions with input from the Staff Assembly.

The Staff Council strives to involve staff in order to stimulate and maintain a spirit of unity as colleagues in all departments within our campus community.

Marlene Borland Staff Book Fund

The Marlene Borland Staff Book Fund was established in 1997 by UM-Flint staff members, Catherine A. Moore and Roxanne M. Brunger, to provide University of Michigan-Flint staff with funds to purchase books needed for completion of their undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan-Flint. The fund is intended to reward the persistence of UM-Flint staff as they strive toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree. The fund was established in recognition of Marlene Borland, accounting department supervisor, who retired in 1997 after 28 years of service to the University. The awards are made only for Fall and Winter semesters.
