Call for Members: Staff Excellence Fund Committee

Monday, April 15, 2024

The UWSA Appointments Committee is calling for two members to join the selection committee for the Staff Excellence Fund.

The Staff Excellence Fund (SEF) is managed by the Provost's Advisory Committee on Staff Compensation (PACSC). PACSC has delegated responsibility to the UWSA to bring forward proposals from staff for two portions of this fund: Engagement and Leadership Development, and Healthy Workplace Initiatives.

The UWSA has established the SEF committee to generate, review, and recommend for approval staff-generated proposals for SEF funding that are in alignment with the goals of the Staff Excellence Fund by engaging UWSA members and supporting their proposal efforts.

Openings: Two
Term: June 1, 2024 – May 30, 2026
Deadline: Friday, May 10

What’s involved

This committee review proposals for SEF funding from staff members, provides advice for improvement where needed, and recommends proposals that are in alignment with the goals of the fund to PACSC. Committee members need to read submitted applications and various committee terms of reference documents in preparation for meetings.

The committee also actively solicits proposals from staff throughout the year.

Please see the SEF Committee terms of reference for more information.

Qualifications

The Staff Excellence Fund Committee functions best with members who are:

  • Conscientious, collaborative, and equity minded.
  • Excited about seeing staff apply their passions, expertise, and experience in new and valuable ways.
  • Self-reflective and committed to challenging implicit biases.
  • Willing to share their thoughts and opinions with the committee while holding space for the perspectives of others.
  • Able to treat and discuss applications with sensitivity and confidentiality.

Familiarity with UW procurement policies and procedures is a nice bonus.

Time commitment

The committee meets virtually approximately 4–5 times a year for one hour on an as-needed basis. Some reading preparation is required with (typically) 1–3 applications for review prior to each meeting. Applications vary in length but are typically 2–4 pages long.

Appointments are normally for a two-year term, renewable once at the discretion of the Committee Chair.

How to apply

Please submit the UWSA committee application form by Friday, May 10, 2024. Please direct any questions to the chair of the UWSA Appointments Committee, Carly Richardson, at carly.richardson@uwaterloo.ca. Applicants will be notified of decisions by May 24.
