2016-2017 Staff Senators

Staff Senate's Purpose

The Staff Senate and its elected senators represent YOU to the campus leadership. Our job is to advocate for staff in the areas of compensation, benefits, safety, parking and other workplace issues.

 Celebrating Staff

The Staff Senate knows that we need to appreciate the hard-working staff of the University of Arkansas. Every year we orchestrate the Staff Celebration Picnic in May and the Staff Appreciation Week in October.

Recognizing Staff Excellence

The University relies on staff to continue the tradition of excellence. The Staff Senate recognizes staff who have contributed the most to the University through the employee of the quarter, employee of the year, part time staff of the year, and staff team of the year awards.
