Council of University System Staff (CUSS)

Contact: Aaron Tobiason (

The University System of Maryland (USM) Council of University System Staff (CUSS) provides non-faculty employees of USM institutions, who are not part of a collective bargaining unit represented by a union, with a voice in the governance of the system. Through the council, all staff have the opportunity to influence decisions affecting the System Staff's interests. Each of the institutions within the USM is apportioned representatives based on their size. The University of Maryland, College Park has three regular representatives and three alternates. CUSS representatives also serve as ex-officio members of the Senate Staff Affairs Committee. More information about CUSS can be found on the main CUSS website.
