Serving on SAC

Do you want to be part of a great opportunity to learn new skills and be part of a great team of staff from across the University? Do you know someone who would benefit from a professional development opportunity and appreciate the chance to be involved in the Brown community? Are you willing and able to make the commitment? We are always looking for dynamic and vested individuals to join the team!

Being a member of SAC is a significant time commitment. Meetings take place twice a month for 60 - 90 minutes each and are held virtually or at different locations throughout the campus. We also hold networking/social events throughout the year, some are after work hours and some are at lunchtime. Being a SAC member means you are willing to participate in events and support the Council's efforts to engage with staff in a multitude of ways.


Staff employees applying to be on SAC must complete at least nine (9) full months of regular University employment prior to the start of his/her term and must serve in a regular position that is designated as 80% time or greater.
