Advocating Staff

State CapitolThe Staff Senate advocates for policies and procedures that affect university staff. Evaluating issues that arise in the state legislature, supporting positive human resource matters, recommending effective transit and parking policies and encouraging staff friendly internal affairs practices are all part of our advisory role.

Previous accomplishments include involvment in the shaping of the non-classified maternity and paternity leave plan; the successful implementation of the optional short-term disability plan; advocating for reduced parking permit rates for lower-salaried employees; and involvement in the decision-making process for inclement weather emergencies.
