Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis and awards will be made two times per year. Deadline to apply for spring/summer conferences is January 15th, and for fall conferences the deadline is August 1st. The application can be found here or by contacting any CSC member.
More information about the scholarships offered by CSC can be found here, or by clicking the link for "Other Information."
Cookbook Fundraiser Started in March 2015
Your Classified Staff Council published a cookbook featuring the best recipes from some our UNC faculty, CSC or PASC members, etc. Each cookbook is professionally typeset, printed and bound with a unique cover and special pages of interest to our group.
The best part is that the profits from the sale of this cookbook helps fund current and future projects sponsored by our group. It might even fund a small educational scholarship for you or someone you know.
Please send an email to ClassifiedStaff.Council@unco.edu if you are interested in ordering your copies, which cost $8 each. Donít forget to order for family members, friends, or your favorite student worker as these cookbooks make wonderful gifts.
Nominate a Classified Staff Member for Employee of the Quarter!
Do you know an employee on campus who deserves recognition? Use this form to nominate them for recognition as an Employee of the Quarter! Nominations are accepted any time, and will be considered for the quarter in which the nomination was accepted. The nomination periods are: Jan 1 - Mar 31; Apr 1 - Jun 30; Jul 1 - Sep 30; Oct 1 - Dec 31.
Want a quick way to let someone know you appreciate the extra effort they put forth without waiting for the nomination period? CSC is instituting a recognition award to Classified Employees who go above and beyond in their daily duties. It can be anything within their job duties that makes a HUGE difference to their department or the University as a whole. Just send an email to any of the Classified Staff Council Members or to the general council e-mail at ClassifiedStaff.Council@unco.edu. Include the name of the person, his/her department, and a very brief description of what the staff member did that made a difference. We'll send them a certificate to let them know they were "Caught BLUE Handed!"
Support your Classified Staff Council's Scholarships and Events!
CSC has many ongoing fundraisers to help support our scholarships and events for employees. Yankee Candle Company, Old Chicago, and King Soopers are all participating vendors. Click here for more information!
Donations Requested For UNC's Independent Students!
The CSC is partnering with the Academic Bridge Program in a campus-wide drive during the month of October and November to collect donations for these worthy students! Independent students are those students who are coming from backgrounds like ward of the court-foster care, unaccompanied youth, homeless, guardianship with someone other than parents, emancipated minors, etc. These are students who come into UNC with very little or NO support. Many of these students are staying on campus because they have no home to go to. While others may have a home, they still have little support and most of them have jobs to try and supplement income and support.
King Soopers Neighborhood Reward Program
The Classified Staff Council has partnered with King Soopers for a new fundraising event - the King Soopers Neighborhood Reward Program! The Program is simple - you can purchase a reloadable King Soopers gift card from the CSC for $5.00 (which comes preloaded with a $5.00 value), and each time you load it with money and use it to purchase groceries or gas, the CSC earns a percentage of the amount! If you regularly shop at King Soopers or any other Kroger-family store, this is an easy way to help support the CSC. See our informational flyer for more information.
Say "Thank You" quickly and easily!
Want a fun, quick, easy, and free way to acknowledge a UNC employee? CSC and PASC have teamed up to create an online "Thank You" e-card. To comply with IT security requirements, you will need to enter your username and password to access the form.
