Staff Senate: Information sessions set for Jan. 8, Jan. 14 and Feb. 6

The newly formed Staff Senate will hold information sessions on Jan. 8 (TUC), Jan. 14 (Victory Parkway), and Feb. 6 (Vontz). These sessions come ahead of Staff Senate elections expected in March.

Staff enrichment is a key pathway within the University of Cincinnati’s Next Lives Here strategic direction, and a new Staff Senate will further empower staff members in nurturing the university’s culture and unleashing its vision.

This new university-wide body will provide staff members with another avenue to contribute to UC’s innovative leadership among urban, public universities. In addition, the Staff Senate will fulfill a larger role in identifying challenges, offering solutions and bringing these to the attention of UC’s top administrators.

Elections are expected to be held in March 2019.

Ahead of those elections, the Staff Senate Advisory Committee is holding information sessions:

  • Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2-3 p.m., Room 419, Tangeman University Center
  • Monday, Jan. 14, 11-11:45 a.m., Room 309, Victory Parkway Campus
  • Wednesday, Feb. 6, 1-3 p.m., in Vontz Auditorium, East Campus

While registration is not necessary to attend, registration allows us to more easily provide you additional information in the future.
