"The Staff Council is organized to foster a spirit of unified community among staff members of Texas Woman's University and to provide opportunities for their democratic representation." Staff Council Constitution 


Welcome Dr. Feyten to TWU!

TWU Staff and Faculty: You raised over $3,000 for the TWU staff person who recently lost everything in a house fire.  Thank you for your generous giving! 

What We Do

What We Do

The goal of Staff Council is to promote a positive and collaborative work environment. Our purposes are:

  • To serve as a representative advisory council
  • To provide a vehicle for communication of staff interests, concerns, and issues
  • To present recommendations to University leadership
  • To promote positive morale among TWU staff

Ways to Stay Connected

There are multiple ways to find out how Staff Council is working for you and TWU. 


The Executive Staff approved the Constitution and Bylaws of the Staff Council of Texas Woman's University in mid-1999. A Steering Committee of 14 longtime staff members from components across the University at the Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses worked for three years to formulate the Constitution and Bylaws. Steering Committee members were Jim Stiles, Patrick Vasquez, Sharon Saullo, Joe Lyle, Vicki Ratcliff, Amy Hall, Don Viator, Katie Flemming, Helene Bonavita, Mary Ramsey, Laurie Hammett, Lori Nelson, Mary Ann McDuff and Ann Hatch.

Human Resources was asked by Interim President Beverley Byers-Pevitts to coordinate the first Staff Council elections. TWU's first Staff Council held it's first meeting on September 29, 1999. Its first order of business was to elect officers and establish the standing committees.
