BECOME A CPC REPRESENTATIVE
What is CPC?
The Council represents CSU State Classified employees on issues such as raises, parking, work-life balance, supervisor training, employee recognition, and members contribute to many university committees across campus.
What would I do?
CPC members meet monthly and serve on one of five committees. Time commitment is between 2-4 hours/month.
Am I eligible?
State Classified employees, working half-time (50%) or more, that have worked at CSU for at least 1 year are eligible to serve.
The Vice President for University Operations encourages you to apply for election to the Classified Personnel Council. Colorado State University depends on a strong, dedicated, and informed CPC to ensure State Classified views, ideas, and concerns are represented in University shared governance. The University depends on the CPC to:

- Research, review, and recommend ways to improve the work lives of State Classified and other CSU employees
- Review bills before the State Legislature that impact the university community
- Recognize State Classified and other CSU employee accomplishments and contributions
- Host informational sessions and employee appreciation events
