About Staff Senate

Staff Senate complements Faculty Senate and Student Senate as a component of Western Oregon University’s system of shared governance. It is comprised of elected members from both classified and unclassified staff at the university. Senate business meetings are open to university staff, guests are encouraged to attend.


Staff Senate seeks to influence positive and progressive change in the Western Oregon University community by:

  • Promoting positive dialogue among staff, faculty, administrators, and students.
  • Advising and making recommendations to the university president on matters outside the scope of collective bargaining.
  • Making resolutions on behalf of constituencies and outside the scope of collective bargaining.
  • Considering ideas or projects of importance to the university.
