The GWU Staff Council

Staff Council Purpose

The purpose of the Staff Council is to represent all employees at Gardner-Webb University below the rank of Vice President who do not have faculty contract.  The Staff Council’s mission is to serve the interests and needs of the Gardner-Webb University staff pertaining to their daily activities and work conditions as they strive to support the University’s goal of providing quality higher education. Toward this effort, the Staff Council promotes understanding and cooperation by facilitating communication among campus constituencies, and by serving as an advocate to the administration for staff issues which affect them. In our efforts to enhance the quality of the Gardner-Webb University work environment, the Staff Council provides leadership and support to work together with all members of the University to enrich community spirit.
