Our Mission

Working as a strategic partner with Haas Senior Leadership, while using the Defining Leadership Principles as a guiding light, the Dean’s Staff Advisory Committee serves to:

  • Enhance the staff experience
  • Encourage awareness and understanding of the staff environment
  • Act as a conduit for information between staff and administration

About

The Dean’s Staff Advisory Committee (DSAC) is an advisory committee consisting of six Haas staff members (and the Dean’s Chief of Staff who serves an an ex-officio member and advisor) who assist the deans of the Haas School of Business in making informed decisions on administrative and other staff issues affecting the Haas community that are not subject to formal labor-management agreements.

DSAC’s six members are appointed for a term of two years. Four members are Haas staff not represented by the clerical and technical unions on campus. Two members of the committee are Haas staff whose positions are represented by the clerical and technical workers’ unions, CUE and UPTE.

DSAC also serves as an additional resource to Haas staff. Committee members can be seen as confidants for staff who would like to voice thoughts and concerns in a safe and confidential manner. We also aim to promote campus-wide opportunities to grow professionally, connect with other staff members, and address policies and procedures that impact the overall staff experience.
