Staff representatives are nominated annually via the Staff Advisory Council’s (SAC) campus committee nomination ballot and are confirmed by SAC. Members agree to serve a consecutive three ­year term. Student representatives are appointed annually by the Macalester College Student Government (MCSG).  In the event that positions are not able to be filled via SAC or MCSG, or if a position becomes vacant, SEAC may pursue filling that vacancy and will then notify the Staff Advisory Council or MCSG.  The committee meets on a monthly basis during the academic year.

It is each representative’s responsibility to maintain contact with the sector he/she represents. Any issues or concerns should be brought to the Committee’s attention by the sector representative.  Monthly meetings are open to all student employment supervisors. The Committee may elect to hold an open forum for major issues affecting the entire campus.
