About

Your gift helps support the Civil Service Council's event and benefit initiatives and awards for civil service employees who are attending an accredited higher education institution.

The Civil Service Council represents all civil service employees at SIU School of Medicine. The Council is recognized by the administration and works within university statutes to provide a means by which civil service employees' opinions and recommendations on university and school matters may be formally expressed. The Council also serves to promote communication and interaction among civil service employees; encourage and provide a means for personnel development; and encourage and promote awareness of all regulations governing civil service employees.

SIU School of Medicine's Civil Service Council was created to represent all civil service employees. A seated council of civil service employees coordinates the following efforts each year: 

  • Annual fundraising events to support the Education & Professional Development Program (EPDP). The EPDP awards educational grants to status civil service employees who are attending an accredited higher education institution.  Fundraising events include:
    • Spring Plant Sale
    • Fall Mums Sale
    • SIU Day of Giving
    • Various Casual Days
    • Paint Night (take-home and in-person)
    • Donut Sale
    • T-shirt & Merch Sale
    • Dean’s Annual Holiday Celebration & 50/50 Raffle
  • Create and suggest innovative benefits that could assist civil service employees, such as:
    • Self-defense workshops
    • Local business discounts
  • Facilitate special events that improve the quality of life for civil service employees. Currently, this includes:
    • Jingle Mingle (biennial) 
    • Dean’s Holiday Reception (biennial)
    • Movie Night at the Park
    • Ice Cream Giveaway
    • Food Trucks on campus
