Staff Council

The Bowie State University Staff Council (BSUSC) represents the interests and concerns of staff employees who are excluded from collective bargaining; participates, in an advisory capacity, in the review and implementation of University policies; and provides a forum for discussion and recommendation on matters involving this constituency and the welfare of BSU.

The BSU Staff Council also develops committees and acts within these committees as a vehicle to serve the membership; provides representation to the Bowie State University Council; inform employees of the University System of Maryland's related actions; and provides a liaison to the Council of University System Staff (CUSS) and Bowie State University.

We are always happy to have volunteers, so if you want to get involved with your Staff Council, please get in touch with any of us. Your thoughts or suggestions are always welcome.
