About S.A.C.

The Staff Advisory Committee (SAC) committee is made up of a group of dedicated volunteers from departments and divisions throughout the college. We're your co-workers, colleagues and friends, so you can be confident that we share your desire for a great working environment at Columbus State.

Commissioned by the College President and sanctioned by the Board of Trustees, SAC serves an important link between staff members and college leadership. We are your liaisons to college leadership regarding ideas and issues that impact Columbus State staff.



SAC reviews, evaluates and makes recommendations on institutional and staff development concerns.


Council meetings are administered using the Parliamentary Procedure and are held on the second Thursday of each month at 2:00 p.m. Our meetings are open to all college employees. Matters to be discussed by the Council can be initiated by staff members, Council members, the Council's Executive Sponsor or the College President. Contact a Council member or write to to learn the location. Please join us when you have the opportunity!


Any staff employee can join a Council Committee and meetings are open to all Columbus State employees. The Council will accept new members twice per year. Staff employees who wish to become a Council Member for the first time or after an absence of a year or more must complete the SAC New Member Form
