University of Kentucky College of Agriculture

Mission and History

In January 1997, the Lexington campus chancellor charged deans, vice-chancellors, and directors with developing a formal staff advisory group. The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment's response was CASLC, College of Agriculture Staff Liaison Committee. It was formed in July 1997 by former Dean C. Oran Little to act as an advisory group to the Dean regarding staff issues. Our first meeting was on July 15, 1997.

In 2005 the committee renamed itself StaffLINKS since we provide Liaison, Information, News, Knowledge, and Service to the staff of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and the School of Human Environmental Sciences.

Members of StaffLINKS are selected by their departments or departmental units for a three-year term to provide representation for all staff within the College.

We meet quarterly on the third Tuesday of February, May, August and November. Special meetings are called to handle urgent issues. Sub-committees are formed as needed.

If you are a staff of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and the School of Human Environmental Sciences and have concerns related to College or University policy or procedures, you are invited to contact any of the department representatives.
