The Staff Association provides an opportunity for staff to share information and ideas pertaining to campus business and social life.

The Staff Association was formed in 1971 and a representative body was established to provide a means for communicating with the College's administration. The organization of the Association took various forms until 1982, when formal by-laws were drawn up and adopted. Membership is open to all employees, except faculty and administrators.

Objectives:

  • To share a concern for the community life of the College
  • Develop effective channels of communication to afford staff fuller participation in the life of the College
  • Develop an effective mechanism through which staff members may participate in decisions that affect them
  • Develop procedures through which staff may voice concerns and seek action on specific problems as needs may dictate
  • Provide support for members and make it possible for the staff to participate more actively in the Haverford College community as a whole
Organization

Ten members are chosen to represent all segments of campus on an executive committee, which includes four elected officers. Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday each month during the academic year. The Association sends representatives to the Managers and the Administrative Advisory Committee (AAC). Appointments are also made to ad hoc committees. It is important for all employees to realize that the officers and the committees are elected to represent the Staff Association, not to run it. Employees should make a point of discussing with their representatives any matter that they think should be raised with the administration for correction or clarification. Raising questions ultimately benefits both the staff and the College.
