Board of Regents Approves USG Staff Advisory Council

COSA Executive Board

The University System of Georgia (USG) Board of Regents (BOR) Committee on Organization and Law voted on Tuesday, Aug. 7, to recognize the USG Staff Council as an advisory committee to the BOR. The BOR then voted to approve the motion set forth by the Committee to recognize the USG Staff Council.

"On behalf of the entire USG Staff Council, we thank the Board of Regents for recognizing staff members,” said Yvonne Landers, Council on Staff Affairs (COSA) immediate past chair. “Through their leadership and support, USG Staff Council will continue to engage, foster and provide progressive leadership as an integral and influential partner.”

The proposed policy states that there shall be a USG Staff Council, which shall provide a staff voice on all matters related to non-faculty employment within the University System. The USG Staff Council will be mindful and respectful of matters that are more appropriately within the authority of each institution’s administration.

Membership of the USG Staff Council shall be comprised of one voting representative from each USG institution and that representative must be in the classified service of the represented institution.Nothing in this policy or the USG Staff Council’s by-laws shall supersede the authority and responsibilities of institutional presidents addressed in Policy 2.5, and presidents will remain the official media of communication between institutional employees and the Chancellor.

For more information on this policy, contact VSU’s COSA at 229-333-5710.
