College Staff Forum Council

Message From College Staff Forum Council Chair

Welcome to the College Staff Forum Council information page. NOVA’s Forum Councils (formerly called Campus Councils) discuss and address issues and concerns relevant to their particular constituency and share them with the College Senate as part of the College Forum structure.

NOVA’s College Staff comprise of nearly one-third of the total employees at NOVA.  In 2015-16 the College Senate bylaws were updated to add a College Staff Forum Council to the prior “Campus” Council structure, and in 2016-17 the CSFC was launched to provide full representation in college governance for non-campus-affiliated employees.

CSFC meetings are open to all classified staff and professional and administrative faculty with a college staff designation.  Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., alternating in location between the Brault Building on the Annandale Campus and the Pender complex.  If you have an issue you would like to elevate for discussion by the council or through a forum committee (Personnel Services, College Senate, ISSC), please feel free to contact me to request time on the agenda.  You may also confidentially elevate issues or concerns through any member of the council (current membership is outlined below).

We look forward to serving and representing you this year!

Kerin Hilker-Balkissoon, CSFC Chair
