The Chancellor's Staff Advisory Council (CSAC) actively researches and identifies UCSB staff issues and reports these issues directly to the Chancellor. The Council also provides advisory services to the Chancellor and other senior administrators on campus policies, procedures, and long-range plans pertinent to staff.
CSAC plans annual Staff Celebration Week activities, nominates staff members to serve on campus committees, and provides advisory services to the Chancellor and to other senior administrators on campus policies, procedures, long-range plans, and other issues. Many staff on campus have served on CSAC.
Additionally, CSAC's co-chairs and council members regularly participate in committees and meetings that have local and system-wide impact. This has included interview committees for the Executive Vice Chancellor, housing committees, transportation studies, and campus planning committees. The council participates in meetings with high-level officials such as the President of the University of California, the Staff Advisor and Staff Advisor Designate to the Regents, Vice Chancellors and Associate Vice Chancellors across campus, and administrators from central offices. By participating in these important committees and meetings, CSAC provides staff voices and perspectives to the administrative and physical infrastructure of the University.
