Staff Senate - 22-23


About Us

Members of the UT Tyler staff are extremely important to the success of the University and the fulfillment of its mission. The Staff Senate is an official body of the University formed for the purpose of furthering the fulfillment of UT Tyler’s mission. Members of the Senate have wide experience at the University and, from the staff perspective, can inform and advise the President and other University leaders concerning anything affecting the success of the University. They may identify issues of concern, recommend solutions to problems, and otherwise suggest new ways to improve service.

Staff Senate members may also bring forth for discussion concerns of particular interest to the staff. Staff Senate also serves as a two-way means of communication, helping to keep staff members informed about University plans and activities.

Finally, Staff Senate serves as a positive force: promoting a caring atmosphere for students, fostering pride in service, and arranging for staff professional development programs. In that regard, the Senate is responsible for our UT Tyler Star Award program and for organizing the annual University Appreciation throughout the year.
