The Support Staff Council of Gettysburg College is committed to improving the quality of work life for support staff employees of the College and to building a sense of community among support staff, faculty, administrators, and students.
We work, in cooperation with the Co-Directors of Human Resources, through a committee-type structure to address issues affecting support staff in such areas as training and development, orientation and outreach, employee relations, and College policy. Support staff willing to serve on Council committees work on such issues.
Council membership consists of eight rotating members. Yearly elections are held to elect employees from the areas of Dining Services, Facilities Services, Public Safety, and paraprofessional staff. Full-time and permanent part-time employees are eligible for nomination.
