Professional and Scientific Council

The Professional and Scientific Council was established in 1978 for the purpose of studying, formulating, and recommending to administrative officers of UNI policies of interest to Professional and Scientific employees. The Council, consisting of representatives elected by division members, meets monthly during University office hours. Meetings are open to the public unless voted into executive session.

P&S Staff,
HR recently made an announcement that open enrollment has begun for Health, Dental, and Voluntary Life insurance. You have until May 29th to make changes to your plan(s). Changes, including the new rates, take effect on August 1st, but are deducted from your July 31st paycheck.

UNI P&S staff are invited to attend one of two open forums to learn about and provide feedback regarding proposed P&S Policies and Procedures approval processes. The first such opportunity is Wednesday, May 1, from 11 a.m.–12 p.m., ITTC 136. The second opportunity is Friday, May 3, from 12–1 p.m., ITTC 136.

Your voice is an important part of this process. We hope to see you at one of these two sessions.
