Who is USAC?
University Staff Advisory Council represents you if you are a staff member in university central and are not in a union-eligible job. We are an advisory group to administration and staff on issues, policies and practices that affect the university and those served by the council.
We are more than 90 elected individuals, who in turn represent more than 3,000 full- and part-time, exempt and non-exempt Vanderbilt University staff members. Medical Center Staff Advisory Council represents our counterparts in the medical center.

Vanderbilt Employee Hardship Fund
- Would you like to support Vanderbilt's Employee Hardship Fund? USAC has partnered with Kroger's Charitable Fundraising program to help raise money for the Employee Hardship Fund. Here's how it works: Purchase a Kroger card for $5, load it and use it for your grocery shopping. 4% will be donated to the Hardship Fund. That 4% can really add up!
