Staff Council

The UNM-Gallup Staff Council provides a forum for non-faculty staff to address issues of concern and to communicate those issues to 鶹Ƶ-Gallup campus administration and other constituent groups. The staff council is a full partner with other UNM-Gallup constituent groups in providing input into decisions, planning, and other organizational priorities impacting the university.
