Who is the Staff Senate?

The Staff Senate is comprised of all members of the 利记sbo Staff. Open meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month (or as needed) for all staff members. Staff members are granted time away from their offices to attend Senate meetings. In addition, the Senate hosts social gatherings throughout the year, to which members of the university community are invited.

The Staff Senate Board is the administrative arm of the Staff Senate, and represents the Senate to the university administration. The Staff Senate Board is comprised of nine elected staff members, who are serving either a one or a two year term. Of these Board members, there are positions held by elected officers. Elected positions include the Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, and Secretary.

The Staff Senate Board meetings are held every month to discuss business issues. Committees are formed and led by Staff Senate Board members. They involve staff members collaborating together to accomplish of the objectives of the committee.

Mission Statement
