CSAC was established in November 1991 to advise and make recommendations to administrators on existing and proposed policies, procedures, and programs which impact or are of interest to NAU classified staff employees.
Per CSAC ByLaws the Council is an equitable representation of classified staff throughout the NAU community, as identified in the NAU organizational chart. A maximum of forty classified staff employees may serve on CSAC, consisting of twenty voting members (who serve two-year terms) and up to twenty non-voting participants (who serve one-year terms).
In order to qualify as a CSAC member, a classified staff employee must have performed at minimum standards or better as an NAU employee for a minimum of two consecutive years. To qualify as a CSAC participant, a classified staff employee must have performed at minimum standards or better as an NAU employee for a minimum of six (6) months.
The time commitment for CSAC members and participants is a minimum of four hours per month.CSAC council meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month from 2:00pm – 4:00pm on the mountain campus in Flagstaff. However in order to involve classified staff throughout the NAU community, CSAC meetings are available via IITV classrooms and webcasts. In addition to monthly Council meetings, members and participants serve on at least one of the CSAC committees which meet separately from Council meetings. CSAC members and participants utilize NAU computer equipment in their respective departments. For complete CSAC information (including the CSAC mission, goals, bylaws, committees, and committee descriptions), view additional info on the CSAC website.
The CSAC membership application form is accessible by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page. Classified staff employees may either nominate themselves or they may nominate a classified staff colleague, but the nominee must sign the application form to confirm their agreement. The nominee’s supervisor must sign the form to support the employee’s desire to become active in CSAC, by permitting reasonable release time as noted above. The completed application form is then submitted to the employee’s respective vice president, associate provost, or provost for signature. The CSAC Executive Board reviews the nominations and presents their recommendation to President Haeger who determines all CSAC appointees.
