UC Staff Senate nominations now open

Get involved in the UC community and make an impact on your workplace

All UC staff not principally charged with teaching, including part-time and full-time staff, are eligible to serve as a staff senator.

To nominate yourself or a colleague for Staff Senate, complete the online nomination form on Bearcats Landing by 5:00 PM on April 2, 2021. Candidates who have been nominated by another staff member will have the option to accept or decline their nomination, and all candidates must have approval from their direct manager/supervisor.

"This year we've had many discussions about making sure that the Staff Senate is inclusive and represents the full diversity of UC staff," said Chris Collins, chair of the senate.  "So, I encourage staff to nominate themselves, or if you know a colleague from a different unit who would make a great senator, submit that nomination."

Visit the Staff Senate nominations site on Bearcats Landing for more information about the nomination process.

As a senator you are expected to:

  • Attend all senate meetings (minimum of five per year).
  • Attend monthly committee meetings (as needed by your assigned committee).
  • Participate in other various events based on availability.
  • Must have prior approval from your manager/supervisor.
  • Serve a two-year term.
  • Read the Staff Senate Bylaws.

Staff members do not have to be a senator to take part in Staff Senate activities, attend general Senate meetings or participate in a Staff Senate Committee.

To get involved, email us.  We welcome your nominations and any questions or comments you might have.
