What is the EAC?

The EAC is a peer-nominated group of employees designed to enhance communication, promote employee commitment, and build community. Council members represent five different districts across the UTSW community to ensure the diverse voices of all employees are heard. The council:

  • Meets monthly to discuss employee issues and brainstorm positive ways to sustain and enhance a positive, productive work environment for all employees
  • Coordinates virtual and in-person events to enhance engagement
  • Partners with UTSW President Daniel K. Podolsky, M.D. to provide perspective on topics important to employees
  • Is dedicated to responding to issues brought forth in the Values in Practice employee engagement survey
