Governing Body for Staff at the University of Kansas

Staff Senate

The Staff Senate is the governing body for all staff at the University of Kansas. We advocate on your behalf for work place improvements, professional development opportunities, employee recognition and more. The senate exists to foster closer cooperation and exchange between professional and support staff; to serve as a forum for discussion of common employment concerns; to facilitate professional development activities for members; and to provide a formal channel to communicate common concerns to appropriate university and state officials.  The three main purposes of the Staff Senate are:
  1. Represent the interests of all university support staff and unclassified professional staff of the University (Lawrence and Edwards campuses).
  2. Serve as a forum for member presentation and discussion of common concerns of employment (e.g., opportunities for professional development, salaries/benefits, evaluation standards and procedures).
  3. Provide a formal mechanism for communicating common concerns to appropriate University and State officials.
