Ice cream social planned for staff

The Staff Senate will host four ice cream socials July 21-24. Staff members can enjoy a cup of Scrappy’s Ice Cream, learn about the senate and meet some of the representatives.

Don Noska, vice chair for the Staff Senate, said the reason for the event is pretty simple: “It’s summer, it’s hot and ice cream is yummy. But seriously, these events allow Staff Senators to interact informally with constituents and each other and to promote the senate and its mission.”

By holding four ice cream socials at various hours, the senate sought to accommodate most work schedules, whether day, evening or night.

The ice cream socials are scheduled for:

  • 2 to 4  p.m. July 21, Discovery Park, dean’s conference room
  • 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. July 23, Facilities Complex, custodial training room
  • 3:30 to 4:30 a.m. July 24, Facilities Complex, custodial training room
  • 2 to 4 p.m. July 24, Hurley Administration Building lobby.

Staff Senate serves staff members as a representative voice to upper administrators about policies and procedures that affect them.

The Staff Senate is made up of 33 elected members who represent more than 2,000 staff employees. Senate members receive input from and provide feedback to an assigned group of employees.

Its mission includes:

  • Referring issues and informing the university administration on items that are of interest and/or relevant to staff members
  • Improving the delivery of services to the university’s constituencies
  • Fostering communication within the campus community
  • Advancing the university’s mission

The senate meets six times per year in general session, and the organization’s executive committee meets five times per year.
