Staff Council Events
Throughout the year Staff Council organizes and/or hosts multiple events to encourage, engage and thank the fabulous staff members at Tarleton. Interested in volunteering or getting involved? Complete our online form to let us know how you would like to serve.
Staff Council meets on the fourth Thursday of each month, excluding holidays. All meetings are open and guests are entered in a drawing for a door prize. Each month we have updates from the various Staff Council Committees and presentations from departments around campus. This is a great opportunity to get connected, learn about what is happening at Tarleton and ask questions.
Our staff works hard all year! Each semester Staff Council hosts a Staff Mixer so you can take the break you deserve. Enjoy a couple of hours with your peers, games and food!
Staff Appreciation Luncheon
Each spring, Staff Council hosts an appreciation lunch for all full-time staff in recognition of their hard work and dedication to the university. This is an opportunity to for all of our staff to come together and celebrate. We also try to have giveaways and our annual Staff Council gift at this event as well.
For the last 26 years, Staff Council has held an Annual Holiday Arts and Crafts Showcase. This year will be number 27! The showcase provides the opportunity for our staff, faculty, students and community members do some holiday shopping on campus and support local artisans and vendors. Vendors register to participate, and proceeds from the event go toward our staff scholarship program.
Staff Development Days
Staff Council collaborates with others around campus to bring forth development opportunities and trainings as requested. Formerly an annual event, staff development is evolving from a single day to multiple training opportunities throughout the year so that more people have the opportunity to participate.
Volunteering at Commencement
Each semester, members of Staff Council organize volunteers to accept tickets at graduation. This opportunity, like others on this page, is not exclusive to members. Commencement is a big day for our students and their families and this is always a great experience for our staff. If you are interested in volunteering for summer commencement, contact Staff Council.
