UC staff have elected their 2022-24 Staff Senators

89 candidates ran and 39 new senators were elected

Congratulations go out to the newly elected Staff Senate members!  

Elections were held the first two weeks of May, with 89 candidates looking to fill open seats representing their VP area or in At-Large appointments. New senators will begin their two-year term July 1, 2022, or will begin a one-year term on that date if completing a term due to a vacancy.

“I want to thank all who ran and took the time to vote, and I especially extend my congratulations to all incoming Senators," says Heidi Pettyjohn, 2021-2023 Chair of Staff Senate. “Staff Senate continues to represent the voice of all UC staff, and we are excited to have your involvement." 

The Staff Senate was established in 2018 as an advisory board to university leadership and continues to serve UC staff through advocacy, education and appreciation.
