The Rice University Staff Council Bylaws calls for four standing subcommittees, an Executive Committee, and an Advisory Board made up of non-voting ex-officio members. The standing subcommittees are expected to change over time to adapt to new university initiatives and new priorities defined by the Staff Council Executive Committee. Subcommittee changes may be adopted by amendment to the Bylaws.

The description of each committee and membership can be found on their individual submenu pages.
