Staff Senate seeks nominations for new senators

Staff Senate is now accepting nominations for the term beginning July 2013. Those elected will have the chance to serve Missouri State University for a three year term by advocating for continuous personal and professional development improvements by initiating or assisting in programs and changes that benefit staff.

Our responsibility to Missouri State University includes, but is not limited to: reviewing policies/procedures and offering recommendations regarding the interests of staff and non-faculty employees; assisting in the communication of issues and activities affecting staff members; serving as a liaison between the President and staff; promoting participation in the University community; and encouraging a sense of community among all University employees. The University encourages all employees to attend Senate meetings and participate in Senate activities.

Staff Senate is actively engaged in the University’s Public Affairs mission by our involvement in Lee National Denim Day for breast cancer awareness and campus community activities such as Student Move In day.
