Linda Hauck Becomes the Library’s University Staff Council Representative

By Alice Bampton

University Librarian and Library Director Joe Lucia announced that Linda Hauck, team coordinator for the Business Research team, is Falvey Memorial Library’s new University Staff Council (USC) representative. “I am extremely confident that she will represent the Library well,” Lucia says.

Hauck came to Falvey as a part-time research librarian in December 2005. She has been full-time since 2007.

“I’m looking forward to working with the energetic USC team that rallied around Phylis Wright (including Jeannine Ahern, Gina Duffy, Joanne Quinn, Marie Roman, Bill Greene, Mary Heyman and Becky Whidden) to do fun and successful fund raisers for hunger relief. I hope by representing the Library at USC meetings I can carry on the work of improving interdepartmental coordination and ensuring healthy dialogue between staff members and the University,” she says.

Hauck replaces Phylis Wright, Falvey’s first USC representative who served two terms (four years).

Lucia says, “I want to express my deep personal gratitude to Phylis Wright… [She] did a phenomenal job for us – and she was there at the beginning. So thank you, Phylis!”

The University Staff Council was created by the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, ’75 A&S, in 2008. According to its charter, “the USC will be an open forum where, within a spirit of respect and frankness, staff representatives and other colleagues will discuss and address cross-University topics and concerns with respect to community building, job fulfillment, work process improvement, and other issues with the ultimate goal of contributing to the University’s Mission and values.”

USC members come from all areas of the University: Financial Affairs, Athletics, Auxiliary Services, Campus Ministry, the colleges, Enrollment Management, Executive Committee, Facilities Management, Falvey Memorial Library, Institutional Advancement, Law School, Office of the President, Office of University Communication, Public Safety, School of Business, Student Life and UNIT.

Representatives attend the council meetings, serve on committees, communicate with their home constituencies and participate in USC projects.
