Membership in Staff Senate is comprised of elected and appointed representatives who meet the following eligibility requirements:
A minimum of two representatives are elected from each Classified Employment Category (EEO):
Appointed members represent the Staff Senate on university committees and will be appointed according to each committee’s bylaws. Staff Senate has representation on over 20 MSU committees and it is through participation on these committees that classified employees are able to keep up with the pulse of MSU and effect change when necessary.
Representatives actively participate in the work of their committee, which is key to providing Staff Senate the information vital to our role in shared governance at MSU and ensuring the views of classified staff are taken into consideration in the decision making process.
A person is normally allowed to attend these meeting during working hours while being paid, but this time is subject to supervisor approval. Learn more about the procedure for the selection of Staff Senate committee representatives.
