The mission of the University Classified Staff Council is to advise the President and leadership of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) on behalf of the classified staff. This is done by making recommendations on existing and proposed policies; weighing in on procedures and programs that impact the classified staff or are of particular interest to them; and voicing questions and concerns from classified staff members.

The UTHealth University Classified Staff Council (UCSC) has launched its Sweetheart Silent Auction, which will continue through 5 p.m. Wednesday, February 10.

All proceeds will support the UCSC Educational Awards Program, a competitive, merit-based awards program that offers financial support for higher education to selected, eligible children of UTHealth classified staff. It is funded, in part, through the support of generous people like you!
