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.  (Scroll down alphabetical list for a full description of this scholarship.  Tuition Assistance scholarship requires an application, which may be picked up in Personnel Services.)
  • WTAMU Staff Leadership Scholarship for spouses, children and grandchildren of WTAMU staff.  (Scroll down alphabetical list for a full description of this scholarship.)
  • Staff Excellence Award
  • Staff Development Programs
  • Birthday Day Off
  • Employee of the Month nominations:  please fill out a nomination form and return to any Staff Council member, or email it to staff_council@wtamu.edu.  Once a staff member is nominated, his or her name remains on the Staff Council voting ballot for three months.  The current Employee of the Year may not be nominated again until the following voting year, which runs June through May.
  • Employee of the Year
  • "I Caught You Caring"

Staff Council is composed of university employees elected by their peers. See the list of Staff Council representatives.
