Staff Council

Staff Council was created in 1993 to provide a representation and a collective voice for the staff at West Texas A&M University.­ From its inception, Staff Council has implemented several programs that are very popular and extremely beneficial to the staff here at WTAMU.­ A few of those programs are:


  • Tuition Assistance Fund Scholarship for full-time budgeted employees (listed by name in the approved operating budget) or a dependent of defined employees; also retirees and their dependents, enrolled in classes at WTAMU.­ (Scroll down the alphabetical list for a full description of this scholarship.)­
  • WTAMU­ Staff Leadership Scholarship for spouses, children and grandchildren of WTAMU staff, who are enrolled in classes at WTAMU.­ (Scroll down the alphabetical list for a full description of this scholarship.)
