Kenyon Staff Council has four main subcommittees. These committees meet regularly to discuss business as it relates to staff members and the general campus community. All Kenyon employees are eligible to serve on Kenyon Staff Council subcommittees (with the exception of communications). If you have a special interest in a subcommittee, please contact a Staff Council member.
Benefits - The benefits subcommittee coordinates with the Office of Human Resources to gather feedback from employees on benefit packages; to ease communication regarding issues of benefits; and to assist with review of benefit packages as necessary. 2016-2017 Benefits Subcommittee: Ellen Harbourt, Shanna Hart, Miracle Mahle, Lorie Shults, Ashleigh Zarley
Communications - The communications subcommittee coordinates all Kenyon Staff Council communications along with the Secretary. They gather questions submitted through the Ask Staff Council page, as well as coordinate and then post responses to the Submitted Questions and Answers page.
