DePaul University Staff Council is tasked with placing staff members on various university-wide committees. The University Benefits and Compensation Committee (UBCC) collaborates with administration to provide valuable input and guidance on faculty and staff interests related to University benefits and overall compensation. Members resolve issues and make recommendations by voting, with the ultimate decision-making authority resting with the Board of Trustees. Our current representatives are nearing the end of their term, and Staff Council is still looking for one new staff member to begin a three-year term in June. If you have interest in assuming this role, please contact Kate Sonka or Angela Shahjahan.
