What is USAC?

University Staff Advisory Council represents you if you are a staff member in University Central and are not in a union-eligible job. We are an advisory group to administration and staff on issues, policies and practices that affect the university and those served by the council.

We are more than 90 elected individuals, who in turn represent more than 4,000 full- and part-time exempt and non-exempt Vanderbilt University staff members. Medical Center Staff Advisory Council represents our counterparts in the medical center.


We meet from 8:30 to 10 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. Meetings are always open to staff members served by the council.
