Staff Senate Events

Creating Community Connections

An essential element of the Staff Senate's mission centers around events that encourage community among staff members and throughout campus. In partnership with Human Resources & Inclusive Community, we also organize and select annual awards presented to staff members who excel in their professional positions.
