SULC Support Staff Council

The SULC Support Staff Council, which serves as a liaison between support staff and the administration, was created at the suggestion of Chancellor Freddie Pitcher in 2003. The council consists of a five-member board that takes grievances and concerns from support staff and promotes activities important to this group. Yvonne Schofield, administrative assistant to the vice chancellor, was elected founding chairperson of the group. Other charter council officers are vice chairperson, Marie Louis, cataloging librarian, Law Library; secretary, Carolyn Stephens, legal secretary I, in the Clinical Education Program; and two members at-large, Angela Gaines, technical support specialist, Law Library, and Srinivas Yadavalli, network analyst, Information Technology and Support Services. Each serves a one-year term. The council's by-laws and complaint/suggestion forms were distributed to all support staff, shortly after board members took office. The council coordinates the annual Support Staff of the Year award.
