The charge of this committee is to research and compile a plan for the possibility of classified employees to become University Support Staff. This committee has been formed to address the needs of classified employees relative to the state civil service system and in response to Senate Bill 21. If a plan is completed, it must be approved by Administration before being brought to the general classified employees for a majority vote with final approval from the Board of Regents.
