Staff Senate

What is Staff Senate?

Governed by UW Regulation 1-3, Staff Senate was established in 1977 and represents UW staff employees, including both exempt and nonexempt. Staff Senate works together with the administration, faculty, students, and trustees for the betterment of the University of Wyoming. We encourage communication, advocate for staff development, and address staff concerns.

Over the years, Staff Senate has been instrumental in bringing numerous benefits and policy improvements to our constituents. 

Staff Senate meets on the first Wednesday of each month (except for July) at 1:15 p.m. via Zoom – Meeting ID: 998 0483 0698. Guests are welcome to attend!

Staff Recognition Day 2021

Traditionally, Staff Recognition Day is an annual in-person event that honors the hard-working staff at the University of Wyoming. It is an opportunity to show appreciation for our staff members who keep UW, including the facilities throughout the state, functioning and providing a top-notch educational experience for thousands of students. Due to COVID-19, things have operated a little differently this year, a time where our staff deserves more recognition than ever. Staff Senate would like to acknowledge the grit, resilience, and patience that staff has exuded throughout this challenging year. Despite the fear, frustration, and uncertainty, they kept going, they showed up and they did whatever they could to make this year a success.

The names of recipients for the 2021 Staff Recognition Day Awards have officially been releasedIt should also be noted that we also have many staff members who have achieved their Years of Service milestones
