Join CPC and make a difference

The Classified Personnel Council (CPC) serves to represent state classified employees at Colorado State University by promoting, improving and protecting their role within the University system. Its elected members form a united voice on issues and decisions that directly impact state classified employees of the university.

Why should you join CPC?

Stay informed on state classified issues. The CPC meets monthly to discuss topics directly impacting state classified employees. Past speakers have included former State Senator John Kefalas, State Representative Jeni Arndt, Dr. Tony Frank, and Lynn Johnson (Vice President of University Operations). Meetings are always interesting and informative, covering topics such as employee compensation, parking, and current campus issues.

Work to improve the work lives of CSU employees. The council is constantly involved in initiatives that directly impact state classified employees at CSU. In the past, CPC played an instrumental role in the creation of a CSU supervisor training program, the implementation of a living wage to bring all salaried employees to an annual income of $30,000, and the creation of a Community Resource Coordinator position to help employees connect with work-life services and resources.

Recognize and reward deserving CSU employees. CPC loves recognizing hard working employees and has a subcommittee dedicated to doing just that!

Showcase your talent by joining a CPC or University committee. Are you interested in pursuing topics like an inclusive physical and virtual campus, women and gender issues, or achieving a work-life balance? Members of CPC sit on over 25 university committees and five CPC subcommittees to ensure that the interests of state classified employees are represented and heard.

Make new friends. CPC is a diverse group with representation from a variety of colleges and departments across campus.
