Professional Staff Organization

The Professional Staff Organization (PSO) exists to represent the interests of all professional staff at LC State. The PSO works with a variety of campus components in an effort to improve personnel and program management, morale, customer service, working conditions, compensation, ethical practices, and overall productivity.

Membership is automatic for all professional staff employees. Members sit on a variety of committees to represent the College on matters relative to the above.
