Who is not able to serve on the Staff Council?

There are a few set parameters to ensure the success of the Staff Council and to be sure the university meets its priority to have well-represented and inclusive participation in the selection and appointment process. To help promote equal representation and encourage broader perspectives and input, union members (as they have voting rights or representation by means of another university group), part-time employees, employees in probation or in a new-employee introductory period, faculty, and members of the President’s Leadership Team (TLT) are not eligible to vote or to serve on the Staff Council. The decision was made after comparison with staff councils at peer universities and consideration of WPI’s organizational structure.
