Staff Council Elections

University Staff Council (USC) members are nominated and voted in by staff at Loyola University Chicago. Elections take place at the end of spring every year. Once elected, Staff Council Members are required to serve for a minimum of two years and a maximum of three years. Elections are generally staggered in order to ensure that there are always experienced Staff Council members on University Staff Council during any given year.
