Staff Council plans name change to Staff Senate

The Staff Council, elected representatives who serve as peer leaders for university staff, has announced a name change from Staff Council to Staff Senate. Each UNT staff member has received an email with the following information and a link to a survey/vote. Photo below, the 2012-13 council.

March 13, 2012

At UNT, each section of the campus community (faculty, staff, students) is represented by a group of peers. These representative groups are known as the Faculty Senate, Staff Council, and the Student Government Association.

The Staff Council has existed for over 10 years and it is responsible for representing the interests and voices of UNT staff members by collaborating closely with university leaders to advance the mission and goals of UNT.

The Council is comprised of over 45 staff representatives who are elected by all staff members.

Staff Council representatives meet regularly with university administrators, members of the Faculty Senate, and Student Government Association to discuss issues which have an impact to UNT staff members.

Over the course of the past year, Staff Council representatives have discussed the possibility of renaming the Council to ensure that your interests and voices are clearly communicated. After reviewing similar staff governance groups at universities around the country, we have decided to move forward with the renaming of the Staff Council to the Staff Senate.

We have discussed this with our colleagues on the Faculty Senate and with the university leadership. They have been very supportive of the proposed name change. Our final step is to allow all UNT staff members to vote on the change from Staff Council to Staff Senate.

Please open the link below to cast your vote.  Please submit your vote by Friday, March 22, 2013.

Sincerely,
Chris Foster
Chair, Staff Council
