What is ESAC?

The Engineering Staff Advisory Council is an elected body that represents staff members in the College of Engineering. This constituent group is composed of Professional and Scientific, Merit Supervisory Exempt, and Merit Confidential staff. The purpose of the Engineering Staff Advisory Council (ESAC) is to facilitate communication within the college, represent staff concerns and issues to College of Engineering Administration, and ensure staff involvement in committees and discussions that affect College of Engineering staff. ESAC also promotes local community service and social activities to encourage community-building within the College of Engineering, and to give back in our larger community.
