Policy Statement

The official professional staff organization is the Professional Staff Senate. It functions as an advisory body, i.e., part of the University's structure, through which the professional staff participates in the governance of the University. The Senate identifies the interests and preferences of the staff about issues of significance to them and to other groups in the University community. In response to specific requests from the administration, it acts in an advisory capacity to the administration. It also initiates recommendations to the administration on behalf of the staff. Generally, it represents the professional staff views on University-wide issues needing decisions and resolution by the administration.
