2018-2019 Staff Senate Goals & Initiatives


Monthly reports from division Senators are being emailed to each staff member of Appalachian State.  In it, the division Senator will relay the highlights and announcements from the monthly Staff Senate meeting, including correspondence from Administration, and serve as a resource for each staff member to voice concerns, ask questions, and offer comments.

Please opt into the Staff Announcements group on announce.appstate.edu to stay informed about relevant opportunities and notices intended specifically for staff on our campus. Staff Senate also welcomes direct communication via email (staffsenate@appstate.edu) or via our anonymous feedback form.

Campus Engagement

All staff members are encouraged to engage with Staff Senate in a meaningful way. Get to know your senators, give a colleague a Staff Shout Out, join a committee, or participate in one of Staff Senate’s many upcoming events.

This semester, volunteer to work Football Concessions (to benefit the AppKIDS program), sign up to be a shopper or a driver for AppKIDS day, or host a box for the AppKIDS food and hygiene drive (contact Kara Harmon for information on the latter two options).

Staff Senate Mission

Staff Senate shall be a consulting body representing the voice of staff among administration, faculty, and the campus community. Staff Senate will represent Appalachian State University staff at the UNC System Staff Assembly. Staff Senate shall ensure that staff work in a positive, respectful atmosphere with potential for their own professional and personal development.
