Welcome to the DSC Website!
We are here to provide a voice for Danforth Campus staff members and to advocate for their needs and concerns.

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve and represent non-faculty and non-union Danforth staff members. We seek to collaborate with the senior administration (Associate Vice Chancellor/Provost level and above) and Human Resources to broaden and strengthen the lines of communication on matters that impact staff and to provide advice to the administration on policy decisions.


The DSC was formed in 2016.
