There several committees within Student Affairs and University Planning that aim to facilitate collaboration and improve the services offered throughout the Division. Contact Dawn Miller if would like more information on any of the committees listed below.
The Division of Student Affairs and University Planning (SAUP) Professional Development Committee plans, implements and evaluates professional development activities for the Division. Divisional professional development activities are intended to complement but not duplicate Academic Affairs or Training and Development programs. Interest from both classified and AP staff is very much needed.
Marsha Mays-Bernard (Chair), David Gillette, Dawn Miller, Janice Garrison, Tracy Hakala, Lisa Mathews-Ailsworth, Matt Skirven
The SAUP Diversity Council is a part of the University-wide diversity effort that emanates from the President’s Office. The council is composed of representatives from all departments in the division and meets monthly. The council developed the SAUP Diversity Strategic Plan. This plan provides the division with recommendations for creating an environment where recruitment and retention of a critical mass of underrepresented student, faculty/staff and administrator exists. The council is directly responsible for the implementation of specific recommendations within the plan. The SAUP Diversity Council generally meets once a month for one and a half hours. Some sub-committee and special project work occurs throughout the year and the time commitment for that varies depending on the project.

The Chronicle is a newsletter distributed each semester that is used to communicate news/events in the Division of Student Affairs and University Planning. It has also been used to recognize individuals in the division for various accomplishments and life events. Additionally, it supports the ongoing efforts related to the division’s values by highlighting how the values can/should impact workplace behavior and decisions. This has and continues to be a team effort. Many people are needed to make this publication happen.
