Dear Fellow Staff Members,
Staff Senate is now accepting nominations for terms beginning July 2022. Those elected will have the chance to serve Missouri State University while representing their specific Job Family for a three-year term.

• 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. As this is an approved work-related activity, PTO is not required when attending meetings and events related to Staff Senate.
