The IU School of Nursing Staff Council is open to all school full time, non-academic staff on the core campuses of IU Bloomington, IU Fort Wayne, and IUPUI. The Core Staff Council was established to foster stronger professional and interpersonal bonds among core staff and between the core campuses and to engage with the broader campus communities.
Staff Council strives to support and develop staff by identifying shared initiatives then collaborating through committees to promote professional development (staff retreat), perform community service, recognize exceptional employee performance (staff awards), assist with new employee onboarding, and more.
In additional to hosting social and professional development events, Staff Council performs the essential function of representing staff in the decision-making process of the School of Nursing’s Executive Leadership committees. Staff Council provides a channel of open communication between staff, administration, and faculty; helps to identify key concerns of staff and work towards solutions; and promotes the professional development of all staff.
