As an advisory body to the President's Commission on the Status of University Women (PCSUW), the Work Life Integration Task Force is charged with proposing revisions to existing, and drafting proposed new, policies and procedures to address the work-life integration needs of faculty, staff and students at MSU-Bozeman.

The Task Force solicits ideas for revisions and new policies and procedures from a variety of sources, including but not limited to ADVANCE Project TRACS, the PCSUW, Faculty Senate, Professional Council, Staff Senate and the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU). The Task Force recommends revisions and new policies and procedures to the PCSUW, which in turn may make recommendations to the President. Upon approval of the President, the Task Force then advocates for the adoption of the proposed revision or new policy or procedure through the appropriate channels at MSU.

The Task Force membership consists of representatives from administration, faculty, staff, students, Human Resources and other appropriate units.
