The Kentucky State University Staff Council is the official representative organization of staff. The Council is responsible for eliciting input from the staff regarding university policies and procedures affecting staff and then conveying those concerns, suggestions, options, and recommendations to the University President.

Additional Council goals include facilitating communication among co-workers, promoting mutual understanding of administration-employee relationships and planning and implementing programs of interest and benefit to the staff.

Council members are elected to represent organizational units, job codes or the university staff at large. Each member serves a two-year term. The Council meets at 2 p.m. the third Thursday of each month in the Academic Service Building (ASB). Meetings are open to all KSU Staff.
