All Staff Council

It is the primary mission of the Drake University All Staff Council (ASC) to promote a positive and collaborative campus work environment.

The Board exists to strengthen communication among and between various University constituencies; to provide a forum for discussing and defining the role of staff in the University; to provide a vehicle for communication of interests, concerns and issues that impact staff; to garner a broad base of input into the strategic goals initiatives of the University; to contribute to a culture of inclusion and recognition.


ASC Meetings

All Drake staff members are welcome to attend a meeting or participate in the existing committees: Recognition, Governance, Special Events & Community Service, and Special Interest as well as attend the Executive Council Meetings.
