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.
The benefits and policy subcommittee coordinates with the Office of Human Resources to gather feedback from and communicate with employees on benefits and employment policy. This subcommittee also assists with the review of benefits packages and employment policies as necessary. Union members may not serve on this subcommittee as their benefits needs are negotiated through the unions. 2016-17 members: Ellen Harbourt, Shanna Hart, Miracle Mahle, Lorie Shults, Ashleigh Zarley
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. The subcommittee regularly reviews submitted questions for discussion by Kenyon Staff Council as a whole to identify potential items for Staff Council review. Only sitting Staff Council members will participate on this subcommittee. 2016-17 members: Annie Ellsworth, Ellen Harbourt, Lauri Lange, Emily Lindo, Rebecca Matney
The events subcommittee coordinates and publicizes all general Kenyon Staff Council events, including but not limited to Common Hour presentations and all-employee lunches. 2016-17 members: Robyn Bowers, Pam Sheasby, Lorie Shults, Kim Totman, Lisa Train
The outreach committee coordinates initiatives designed to inform, engage, and connect members of the Kenyon community. Specific examples of initiatives include ongoing review of the new employee orientation materials and coordinating programming for other Outreach events. The committee also prepares and delivers cheer baskets to employees who are going through a difficult time. 2016-17 members: Kyle Eddy, Barbara Kakiris, Beth Pae, Rachel Shoman, Nancy Sowders
