The Staff Senate is the officially-recognized governance group for all staff members at the University of Louisville. Established to strengthen the bond between staff members, the Senate also participates in the shared governance process with University Administration, the Faculty Senate, and the Student Government Association.
In its advisory role, the Staff Senate reviews University policies, programs and documents affecting staff, and makes recommendations to the Administration on issues that concern the welfare of the staff, as a whole.
The Staff Senate consists of ninety-nine (99) Senators elected from and by their respective Vice President/Dean Areas (VPDAs). Each unit is allotted a number of representatives according to the formula determined in the by-laws of the Staff Senate.
Membership is open to all regular, full-time and/or regular part-time staff members who have at least six months of continuous University service. Senators are elected for a term of two years. Staff Senate applications are accepted at all times throughout the year.
Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month from 2:30 - 4:30, except January and August, when there are no meetings. Meetings are usually held on Belknap Campus, though once each semester, the Senate will meet at various locations on HSC.
NEXT MEETING: MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2019
Thanks to the hard work of the Policy, Economics, and Development (PED) Committee in moving this forward
and working with Human Resources to have this pool established.
RIF Temp Pool Now Available
In an effort to make valuable temporary candidates available to departments at the university,
Human Resources created a temporary pool of candidates that have recently been affected by a Reduction in Force (RIF) from a position at the University of Louisville.
These candidates have university experience and knowledge that can be a great asset to departments in need.
