What will the Staff Council do to address the concerns that the Black community have been voicing? Both on campus and in the communities surrounding ASU. Will the council be committing to take any actions to make ASU a safer space?

Resolution:

In response to this concern, ASU Staff Council has formed an Inclusion Task Force to discuss specific ways ASU can provide a more inclusive environment for all staff. If you are interested in joining this task force, please fill out the following form: forms.gle/HnnYmwMUiu93kgN7A. If you have further questions or concerns, please reach out to your campus Staff Council representatives or submit a new request on the Speak Up Be Heard website.

With the work from home orders people are now required to be spending money to have internet service. This is a personal expense that is being used for work. Does ASU have an consideration to pay for this service now that it is a work requirement?

Resolution:

If a staff member does not already have internet service, they should contact their department, unit or college to request technology support. There will be no reimbursements for people using their private internet service.



Sabbatical for staff

I would love to see ASU give staff the ability to take a paid 3 month sabbatical every 7 to 10 years.  This falls in line with some of the major companies around the valley. While we cannot get equal compensation to private industry, I think this would foster great staff cohesiveness, renewed dedication to the University and add an element of life excitement that cannot be done through typical vacation time.  The University is a leader in the country when it comes to innovation, and I think this would be an added benefit to clear the mind, get re-centered/realigned for each stage of life and career!
