The group consists of employees from multiple departments.

Eighteen staff members were named last winter to North Park’s new Staff Council, which will provide leadership and representation in supporting the university’s full-and part-time staff.

In making the announcement, President Mary K. Surridge said she was “delighted” about the new council, whose members work closely with with liaison Ingrid Tenglin, Assistant Vice President of Human Resources.

The staff council, which consists of staff members from a variety of departments, will foster communication and collaboration between the administration and staff, as well as contribute to university governance in an advisory capacity.

So far, the council has formed a handful of committees, including Communications, Membership, and Bylaws. The council meets monthly, with each member’s term lasting two years.
