Staff Senate

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. in the Union Senate Chambers. Guests are welcome to attend

Serving on Staff Senate

Staff Senate currently has vacancies, and we encourage any staff member who is interested and eligible to consider serving the campus community by joining Staff Senate.

Staff Senate frequently receives questions on the tuition waiver policy, as the full policy is not included in the Employee Handbook. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
