Senator Terms and Committee Assignments 2018-2019

2019-2020 REALLOCATION
As approved in the February 2019 Staff Senate meeting and beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year the areas that senators may represent have been redefined to the following. The most notable change is that representation is determined by the building the staff member is located in, and not by building and/or department. As per the Staff Senate bylaws, area senators will fulfill their term representing the area to which they were elected regardless of current role or area on campus.

  • West: Library, Music, Harned, Thompson, Wyatt
    (4 representatives)
  • South: Fieldhouse & Aquatics Center, Facilities, Weyerhaeuser, Communications House, CICE Houses
    (5 representatives)
  • East: Wheelock Student Center, Student Affairs Houses, Print & Copy Services, Kittredge
