About us

The Staff Senate was established on October 16, 2018 to represent the University of Cincinnati staff. Our role is to provide service to staff through advocacy, education and appreciation. The Staff Senate represents a “unified voice” to advocate for staff employee concerns and, thorough its elected officers, make recommendations to senior university leadership.

If you would like to learn more about Staff Senate, join us for a monthly meeting. You do not have to be a Senator to take part in Staff Senate activities, attend general Senate meetings, or join a Staff Senate Committee. To get involved, email us.
