The University of Southern Mississippi 's Staff Council was established in 1989 to serve as a representative voice for staff members working throughout the University from the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, Gulf Park, Stennis and Hattiesburg locations. We have ten representatives for Academic Affairs, one for Athletics, three for GCRL, two for Gulf Park, one for Stennis, four for Student Affairs, one for External Affairs, six for Finance and Administration, and two for Research. Together, these 30 members represent all campuses and coastal locations. The goal of the Staff Council is to ensure that these excellent staff personnel have a venue to voice their views, interests, and concerns regarding their support of and function within Southern Miss. It is with this voice that staff, faculty, and administration may work together to become a leading force for growth and excellence in service within Southern Miss, our local communities, and the state of Mississippi. The Council meets monthly to discuss orders of business and plan events and programs that benefit staff members from across the University. A guest speaker is also included each month to highlight different areas of the University and teach Council members about new areas.
