The UTMB Employee Advisory Council (EAC) exists to foster bi-directional communication and dialog for all Classified, Administrative & Professional (A&P), and Non-Teaching staff, excluding residents.
The EAC, which is sponsored and endorsed by the Office of the President, works to promote a positive and collaborative work environment that is committed to assessing, prioritizing and communicating employee needs. It also serves as a focus group/advisory panel by providing a feedback loop on broad issues and potential new programs that can impact Classified, A&P, and Non-Teaching staff, excluding residents. For the purposes of representation on the council, the university is grouped in four large segments:
- Academic Enterprise
- Correctional Managed Care
- Hospitals and Clinics
- Institutional Support
