UTSA's Staff Council works to continually improve university operations and the well-being of the university's staff. The 35 members of the Staff Council serve as an advisory body, making recommendations to the president regarding the interests and concerns of staff. Members represent all the administrative areas of the university. Charged by the president and the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System, the Staff Council addresses matters to the university community, and in particular to staff members of UTSA, and is not intended to supplant existing procedures for addressing individual grievances.
Administratively, the Staff Council falls under the Vice President for Business Affairs.
