University Staff Senate

The University Staff Senate works to foster communication and collegiality among Staff of the University, and to: 

  • provide representation for Staff and liaison to the University administration and others regarding issues of concern;
  • initiate and review policies and procedures relating to Staff; 
  • be a cultural driver for Staff that reflects the values of Wichita State University’s Strategic Plan.
